In brief: Therapy first

If not severe then start with nsaid's and a home program to regain the range of motion.
If no improvement then seek care sooner then later and consider formal therapy and possibly a steroid injection in the shoulder joint. If all fails, surgery "manipulation under anesthesia" or arthroscopic surgery with release of adhesions can be very successful.

In brief: Frozen shoulder

Difficult problem. Make sure it's not a boney problem. Generally, progressive stretch with anti-inflammatories and pt can help.
Resistant cases on occasion lead to surgical manipulation and releases.
