Re: [IP] Re:Frozen Shoulder, What is it?



Kitty,
The medical term for frozen shoulder is Adhesive Capsulitis.  I have had it
in both shoulders and it is very painful.  It started in my right and then
left.  My Ortho Dr's always ask if I had injured my shoulders, but I
haven't.  It hurts a lot.  Range of motion is limited, it hurts at night and
just plain aches!  The further you try to move your arm the more painful it
is.  Sometimes physical therapy helps, or cortisone.  I also had tendonitis
with mine, just to make things more complicated.  I ended up having
surgeries to help mine and it did help!  The pain gets tiresome!   I have
been dealing with mine since 1995.  Find a good Orthopaedic shoulder
specialist to help you.
