A few things...: Physical therapy is typically prescribed for progressive restoration of motion. Your doctor may offer you an injection into the shoulder to help control pain as well as to help make the joint capsule stretch more easily. If these efforts don't restore motion, sometimes a manipulation of the shoulder under anesthesia or a shoulder arthroscopy and capsule release are recommended to restore motion.
