Re: [IP] cortisone shots/for frozen shoulder



I had bi-lateral frozen shoulders.  One worked itself out with pt for a very
long time. I had to be knocked out for the right one so they could twist my
arm in a full range of motion.  I woke up with my arm tied to the wall over
my head.  Makes sleeping on your stomach almost impossible.  but that was
ten yrs ago and I'm relatively normal(though some might argue the normal
part!)
