Need Help For Frozen Shoulder
September 4, 2015 9:51am CST
Have you ever had or know anyone who had a frozen shoulder? What treatment helped the most? How long did it take? When I raise my right arm, straight up, it will stop at 11 o'clock, instead of 12 o'clock. I can sleep on my right side, I can carry a bucket of water, but it affects doing overhead tasks like hanging/taking down laundry and reaching for/returning stuff from overhead cabinets.

@hereandthere Yes, I remember very well. While I was lifting a bag in the garden I feel a little pain in my shoulder. The day after I was unable to extend my arm completely, I could not reach the overhead cabinets. I confess that I waited at least 10 days before going to my doctor hoping that the problem auto-fixed. I finally had to go and the Doctor said I had injured a tendon, he wanted to perform surgery, I refused, so I went to the physiotherapist and now I can move my shoulder and arm again.

@LadyDuck i know the incident that triggered mine. i had limited movement in my right arm for a week, i think. i didn't go to any doctor or have hilot (traditional massages) then it went away. it was 6 months later when i started noticing pain when i extend or stretch my arm fully.
