Stretching: Adhesive capsulitis aka "frozen shoulder" occurs when the shoulder capsule becomes thickened, contracted, and adherent. The most effective treatment is a gradual, progressive stretching and/or physical therapy program that mobilizes and stretches the shoulder capsule. Oral meds and injections can help with pain. If symptoms persist, surgical release is performed. Postop stretching is critical. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Stretching: You can try stretching and anti-inflammatories. I might be more concerned that if this is not the correct diagnosis delay in more formal evaluation may allow for disease progression. You could get some physical therapy. In severe cases the adhesions need to be "broken up" while under general anesthesia. ...Read more
What are some food or supplement that would help in treating frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis?
I trying to find a doctor who will do arthrographic distension for adhesive capsulitis in the Northeast US (I live in southern Vermont).
Alternatives....: that procedure is fairly outdated, with limited success rate. Steroid injections, physical therapy, and manipulation are all considered, with arthroscopic capsular release as a last option of all else fails. See a shoulder specialist if your problem is not resolving with your current treatment regimen. ...Read more
I have had adhesive capsulitis on left shoulder for 9 months now . I am beginig to feel pain on right arm . How can I prevent AC on my right arm ?
Keep your motion: First off see a specialist to determine the underlying risk factor for the capsulitis (diabetes, thyroid abnormalities, etc) and make sure the these risk factors are treated as well as the stiffness. Then i would implement a stringent bilateral range of motion program with a physical therapist. If you still lack motion after 6 months to a year then you may want to discuss surgical options. ...Read more

As a 30 year type-i diabetic i've had frozen shoulder. Now having similar pain in legs. Is adhesive capsulitis possible in other than the shoulder?
Have tear in labrum. Bone spur. Slight arthiritis (i'm 28). Surgeon states surgery will fix these issues and solve adhesive capsulitis. Is this true?
Too many things: A frozen shoulder is very painful and does not typically show up on a MRI like the other items do. These things typically do not go together. I would suggest another opinion from a shoulder specialist. I would suggest treating the adhesive capsulitis first and non-operatively. Then if you are still having issues, consider addressing the others with surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
