Re: [IP] frozen shoulder

HI...had to reply to this one!!!!
I've had 2 manipulations done on one shoulder....I let the pain go on for 2
years before even seeing a doctor...had cortisone (no help)
injections...then manipulation,followed by 8 weeks of therapy (very intense)
did not get much use back...then it froze again and I didn't hesitate and
went straight for the manipulation...worked this time and I could tell right
after the manipulation that it had worked....have been pain free ever
since.....YAHOO!!!!!...my point being..DON'T WAIT and put if off...just
makes thing worse and the "manipulation" isn't much worse than it
sounds...I'm still dealing with a lot of "tendon" things due to my
diabetes...in my hands...but at least these are "fixable" things....please
feel free to write me off list...(trying to be and encourager here NOT a
discourager....) hope this helps some...
hang in there!!!!!
