Re: [IP] Frozen Shoulder Treatments
I have frozen shoulder in my Left shoulder and had it in my Right. In my R I
had PT for about 3 months without success. My Ortho did a manipulation under
anesthesia and it gave me temporary relief (he only broke a few adhesions) for
about a month. He finally sent me to a shoulder specialist and I had a full
capsular release surgery and it was a miracle! My Physical Therapist couldn't
believe how well my arm moved post-surgically - I started PT the same day I
had surgery. I had it done in 1996 and my motion is still great. I was
recently diagnosed with AVN in my R shoulder and had some surgery for that,
but my motion has continued to be great, although dealing with a lot of pain.
I am currently undergoing PT on my L shoulder and had a manipulation done in
June (while under for my R shoulder surgery) without much success (again, he
broke a few adhesions). Right now I am at a point of great frustration and
want my Ortho to do a full release on my Left. I had a cortisone injection in
it today and I am hoping it will give me some temporary relief. I had one 2
months ago and it did help.
I have been on Vicodin for about 6 years to help with the pain and currently
take about 4 a day.
The pain is so uncomfortable, isn't it? It just aches! Reaching is what
really bothers me. The stabbing pain down the arm is really tough to deal
with sometimes! I know a lot of people that have had frozen shoulder and have
received great relief from PT or manipulation. I just tend to be more
I wish you the best!
