In brief: 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that procedure is fairly outdated, with limited success rate.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.
