Hello. : Hello. Just thought i would bring up one more option for the treatment of a frozen shoulder - medical acupuncture. It often helps to improve range of motion and pain.

Costs depend on : The extent of the procedure and the facility charge. I routinely perform an arthroscopy with capsular release and manipulation. I may charge 1000 to 1500 dollars or so for this but the real cost comes from the surgery center or hospital. Additionally therapy is necessary after this type of procedure. See if you can negotiate the surgery center fee.
