Stiffness; Pain; Frozen Shoulder

Shoulder joint is the joint between the head of the humerus (upper end of the arm bone) and the glenoid cavity of the scapula (the triangular bone of the upper back).

Since it is a 'ball and socket' type of joint, it allows a great deal of movement. This excessive mobility makes it vulnerable to sprains.

A very common disorder of this joint is 'Frozen shoulder' or. Peri-arthritis of the shoulder'. This is characterized by severe stiffness of the shoulder. All possible movements are equally restricted and any effort to move the arm produces severe pain.

Shoulder may also develop osteo-arthritis, especially if it has been, previously, a victim of injury. However, osteo-arthritis of the shoulder is much less common than that of joints of the lower limbs.

Reflex Zone Therapy :

(A) General treatment of the whole body : Start with general treatment as described on page 33.

(B) Specific treatment of the shoulder : The right shoulder is represented on the outer border of the right foot, whereas the left shoulder is represented on the outer border of the left foot, as shown in the adjoining diagram.

Place the corresponding foot on the other thigh. 'Walk' the thumb over the entire trigger area for the shoulder in small steps, taking care not to omit even a smallest spot. During such probing, every time you encounter a sore spot, stop moving the thumb further and, with its tip, give deep, alternating pressure for about a minute. Repeat this treatment twice a day.

(C) For very severe pain : Tie small rubber-bands on all the toes (or fingers) of the corresponding side for 10-12 minutes. During this period, if a toe starts aching or turns black, remove the concerned band for a while (till the normal colour returns) and then reapply it. If necessary, repeat again after an hour or two.

PROBLEMS OF THE ELBOW Stiffness; Pain; Arthritis; Tennis Elbow

Elbow joint, like the knee joint, is a hinge type of joint present between the lower end of the arm bone (humerus) and the upper ends of forearm bones (radius and ulna).

This joint allows movement only in one plane. Therefore, it is less likely to suffer from sprains.

Among common disorders of the elbow are : tennis elbow, osteoarthritis and other forms of arthritis. Symptoms of these disorders include pain and/or stiffness in the elbow.

(C) For very severe pain : Tie small rubber-bands on all the toes (or fingers) of the corresponding side for 10-12 minutes. During this period, if a toe starts paining or turns black, remove the concerned band for a while (till the normal colour returns) and then reapply it. If necessary, repeat again after an hour or two.
