Niel-Asher Technique

Frozen Shoulder Treatment

Unlike the other techniques the Niel-Asher Technique is a natural method for treating Frozen Shoulder and other shoulder problems only. It uses a specific sequence of massaging strokes, shoulder movements and pressure points to restore function to the shoulder joints and soft-tissues.

Conventional Approaches, Pain, Months of Therapy and or Surgery

Conventional approaches to treating Frozen Shoulder involve painful injections, months of physical therapy and/or surgery.

Traditional physical therapies (physiotherapy, chiropractic, osteopathy) attempt to improve the range of motion by forcing the shoulder through the blockage; this can make things considerably worse, and is not how the Niel-Asher Technique works.

What’s different about the Niel-Asher approach?

The Niel-Asher Technique works differently. In a frozen shoulder there is excessive inflammation and the brain starts to recruit the ‘wrong’ muscles to move the shoulder.

The Niel Asher Technique ‘fools’ the body/brain into healing itself by addressing the pain and stiffness. Initially the technique aims to reduce the pain, by treating the swelling around various shoulder tendons. Following this, the technique moves on to rapidly ‘defrost’ and improve the range of shoulder motion by stimulating a unique sequence of reflexes hidden within the muscles. This works on the parts of the brain that co-ordinate the shoulder muscles. One reflex is triggered against another in a choreographed sequence. We do not force the arm; instead you keep it still whilst we apply the pressure.

Patients treated with this technique should feel an improvement with each treatment.
