Just be easy with your swim strokes and don't over do it so that you don't reinjure or worsen your shoulder. ...Read more

Is it possible to still use a rowing machine with a frozen shoulder?

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

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.

What freezes in frozen shoulder?

Shoulder capsule: In frozen shoulder (or adhesive capsulitis), the actual shoulder joint is tight. Since we do not know the actual causes or adhesive capsulitis, we have difficulty studying it. We do see a period of inflammation that causes thickening of the shoulder lining (capsule). There can also be adhesions that stick from the capsule to the surrounding shoulder. This all loosens and thins over 8-16 months. ...Read more
