In brief: Keep your motion

First off see a specialist to determine the underlying risk factor for the capsulitis (diabetes, thyroid abnormalities, etc) and make sure the these risk factors are treated as well as the stiffness.
Then i would implement a stringent bilateral range of motion program with a physical therapist. If you still lack motion after 6 months to a year then you may want to discuss surgical options.
