In brief: Frozen - 18mo

Frozen shoulder can take 18 months to resolve by itself.
Surgery can speed this. Rheumatoid arthritis is typically a lifelong disease.

In brief: 6 wks vs lifetime

Frozen shoulder is a common benign shoulder that can easily resolve with physical therapy in 4-6 weeks.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a life long condition that never really goes away but can be controlled depending on the severity of the disease and the medications used.
