Raziya Mulla, a 50-year-old nursing assistant working at a cancer hospital in Belgavi, had been suffering from frozen shoulder pain for the past two years. She had been having trouble lifting her left arm, and the pain was significantly impacting her quality of life. Despite trying various treatments and therapies, Raziya had not found any relief.


Upon visiting Kerur Pain Clinic, Raziya was diagnosed with adhesive capsulitis, also known as frozen shoulder. Adhesive capsulitis is when the shoulder joint becomes stiff and painful, making it difficult to move. It occurs when the tissues around the joint become inflamed and scarred, restricting the joint's movement.


Raziya's symptoms were consistent with adhesive capsulitis. She had a limited range of motion in her left shoulder and could not lift her arm without experiencing pain. She also reported difficulty sleeping due to the pain and discomfort.


Dr. Ravi Kerur and his team at Kerur Pain Clinic recommended injection therapy to treat Raziya's frozen shoulder pain. Injection therapy involves injecting a corticosteroid medication directly into the shoulder joint to reduce inflammation and relieve pain. The procedure is non-surgical and minimally invasive, making it an attractive option for patients like Raziya who want to avoid surgery.


After receiving the injection therapy, Raziya reported significant improvement in her pain levels and range of motion. For example, she could lift her left arm more than 60% higher than before while experiencing pain. Additionally, her quality of life improved, and she could return to her work as a nursing assistant without any restrictions.


Raziya's case demonstrates the effectiveness of injection therapy in treating adhesive capsulitis, a painful and limiting condition. Dr. Ravi Kerur's expertise in pain management and his team's patient-centered approach helped Raziya find relief from her chronic pain and regain her quality of life. In addition, injection therapy provided Raziya with a non-surgical option to treat her frozen shoulder pain. Her positive outcome is a testament to the clinic's commitment to delivering patients advanced, evidence-based pain management solutions.
