What is it & How it works?
Frozen shoulder or a stiff shoulder are common conditions that can be caused due to trauma or a chronic health condition such as diabetes or thyroid disease. Frozen shoulder affects women more than men and usually occurs around or after reaching the age of 50. Hydrodistension procedure at an early stage of the frozen shoulder along with effective regular stretches can help to address movement restriction in the shoulder joint before stiffness progresses to a severe level.
Hydrodistension or hydrodilation injection involves injecting a high volume of saline with a combination of local anesthetics and corticosteroid into a stiff “frozen” shoulder joint. Hydrodistension for the “frozen” or stiff shoulder is well known for its high success rate in delivering visible results, which can be experienced immediately after the injection. It is a safe, quick, less invasive technique and there are no restrictions required in your daily activities following the Hydrodistension.

Frequently Asked Questions
Corticosteroid injections are relatively safe procedures with minimal side effects. There is a small risk of allergy and infection or slight flare up of pain that can occur immediately or within few days following the procedure. Our Musculoskeletal Specialist team in Northampton will perform a complete screening prior to your procedure to ensure safety.
There is no need for rest following the hydrodistension procedure. You should start stretching the shoulder joint regularly following the procedure to obtain best results.
You should not drive immediately after the injection. Please organise a pick-up or arrange a taxi to return home.
Your appointment will be a “one stop shop” in which our Musculoskeletal Specialist will carry out a physical examination and ultrasound scanning to diagnose your problem. You will have plenty of opportunity to discuss your care with our specialist prior to proceeding with your injection.
Results obtained from the hydrodistension procedure in combination with regular stretches are permanent in most cases and there will not be any need to repeat the procedure. However, shoulder problems are likely to recur in patients suffering with uncontrolled or fluctuating disease like diabetes.
You can have multiple hydrodistension procedures in a year. Our specialist will review your condition every time to advise you appropriately before agreeing on repeating the procedure.
