It is painful and can impact your sleep. You can try measures like anti-inflammatory over-the-counter meds, heat/cold, physical therapy. If you can't wait this out, you might want to ask your orthopedist about shoulder manipulation under anesthesia. ...Read more

Depends on phase: Frozen shoulders can be exceptionally painful, all the time, during the initial inflammatory phase. When in the frozen phase, pain usually occurs at the end range of motion. Once you start regaining your range of motion, pain begins to lessen fairly dramatically. Once you have approximately 85-90% motion, pain almost never as issue. ...Read more

Not so bad: Manipulation under anesthesia is performed for a frozen shoulder that has failed to improve after many months. Manipulation is designed to break up the scar tissue, and restore range of motion. Most times, shoulder arthroscopy is performed as well to perform additional capsular releases and improve outcomes. Pain is managed with narcotic pain meds, and most surgeons will recommend an interscalene block to further reduce post op pain. ...Read more

After resolution: A frozen shoulder goes through an inflammatory phase that becomes worse with any extensive exercises. It is best to wait until the inflammatory phase passes and the motion has started to return before attempting any strengthening. Most of these resolve on its own, but may take up to 1-2 years. ...Read more
Frozen shoulder: I would not advise it especially since you do not have normal range of motion at your shoulder. Supervised physical therapy sessions that include gradual active and passive range of motion exercises would make more sense. Getting a cortisone injection to help relieve pain may be helpful. As your range of motion, strength, and pain improves, then you have less risk of re-injury or worsening. ...Read more

Had cortisone put in shoulder for frozen shoulder 3 weeks ago. Its stopped working already. Can I have more put in yet?
Cortisone: Cortisone is great to treat inflammation but can weaken structures like tendons and ligaments. For this reason, it is too early for another steroid injection. You need non-steroidal anti-inflammatories and physical therapy. If this fails, an anthroscopic procedure to break up adhesions. ...Read more
I can move my "frozen shoulder" with no restriction except when trying to take off my t-shirt or lifting something heavy then is it a frozen shoulder?
