  1. Not sure where you are in the process. You will need to see ortho. They will have to sedate and pull it apart if it is truly set.

  2. I am still in recovery of having frozen shoulder started in March had a bunch of tests done and dr said it can take up to 3 years to have full use maybe not completely. Just last week I was able to move my arm above my head and touch the lower part of my back

  3. I have had four episodes of frozen shoulder. Believe me, I have seen and done it all. I’m the expert. Recovery takes time, but there are different modalities of treatment. You will recover at the same rate even if you do nothing but wait it out. When the pain subsides, you will need yo do the necessary stretching exercises.

  4. No one told me about the necessary stretching exercises!!! Can you share?

  5. Ugh. I was just diagnosed this week. I have to have another MRI because the ortho thinks I may have a tear in the rotator cuff also. This is by far the worst pain. I was given naproxen 500 mg.

  6. Mine was frozen for a year, then miraculously I woke up one morning and it had healed on it’s own.\nI had to sleep alone, every time my hubz would move. I’d awake in excruciating pain. \nMy piece of advice for you is if it (exercising, stretching, lifting) hurts, don’t do it.

  7. My shoulders are always tight

  8. Thank you so much ladies. This is so damn painful. It’s so very hard to be optimistic when you have one thing after another go wrong with your body.

  9. Suffered for over a year and then for three days I simply could do nothing at all with the arm. It had been painful before but this was beyond that. Exactly like someone said I woke up after those three days and the pain was gone and mobility was back. I refused surgery as it couldn’t cure the problem permanently, just for this particular episode or flare. I also refused cortisone shots.

  10. Ice, rest, more ice, rest, ice, ice ice. I had it twice. Recover is slow but was faster the second time because I iced it more often. Physical therapy didn’t help much. Rest and ice for weeks is my best advice. Baby that shoulder for awhile. Begin stretches when the pain subsides.

  11. My dad did. It took about 2 years to resolve and physiotherapy and pain relievers helped him.

  12. I healed my own frozen shoulder with Magnesium, Vit D3, Vit K2&k4, because I was menopausal I also used progesterone cream and estrogen cream, (specific to my condition, not for everyone). You will also need the co-factors for magnesium. Any doctor that says you need to “deal” with it or recommends surgery without trying supplements first does not understand the condition. A dear friend of mine had the surgery on her shoulder and is now disabled. Her doctor did not realise she would form keloids. Acupunture can help also, although I personally did not try it. My shoulder was better within 3 weeks.

  13. Stupid newbie question: is this related to Hashimoto’s? I’m am really new to this so forgive my ignorance. I have the worst shoulder pain but attributed it to my joints failing. Is there a connection?

  14. Both shoulders, but not at the same time! First one I had an MUA, second in other shoulder I decided to leave to resolve by itself…..which it did, with no physio or anything, took just short of 3 years to fully resolve, but resolve it did. Such a painful debilitating condition, not being able to dress or undress, brush hair, such simple things:( I have Hashimotos

  15. Is this a common condition with thyroid problems? Just asking out of interest only – I’m not familiar with it. Sounds painful, my shoulders are always stiff, for most of my adult life. Sometimes they hurt. Never frozen though.
