Variable: Your question really brings up three seperate issues. Sore muscles can result from a variety of problems, but typically appropriate rest, stretching and progressive activity. Second, frozen shoulder is a joint capsular problem that can be treated first by rest, nsaids and avoidance of provactive activity, the physical therapy. Finally, inflammed tendon, treat like sore muscle.

Many Possibilities: Prolotherapy typically by itself will cause ligaments to tighten up, usually due to scarring or fibrosis of the ligaments. However now prolotherapy is used to introduce new blood supply to the area and then many times following it with the prp and/or stem cells in the area can repair the tissue/ligaments by the hopes that the stem cells regenerate the same normal tissue type.
