What Is Frozen Shoulder?
A frozen shoulder becomes stiff and painful, with limited range of motion. The space inside the shoulder joint slowly gets smaller. Frozen shoulder may take months to years to improve. A frozen shoulder develops in stages. In the fi rst stage (freezing), people notice shoulder pain and that it’s harder to move that arm. This stage usually lasts about 4 months. In the next 4 months, the shoulder stays very painful. It’s possible to move the arm only a little. This is known as being frozen. In the last stage, thawing, pain slowly goes away, and the arm can be moved again. This phase also lasts about 4 months in most cases.
What Causes Frozen Shoulder?
Causes of spontaneous frozen shoulder are unknown. A long period of immobilization, such as with wearing a sling or a cast after an injury, can cause it. Things that can increase chances of getting a frozen shoulder include long-term bed rest, shoulder injury, diabetes, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and thyroid problems.
What Are the Symptoms of Frozen Shoulder?
Pain occurs throughout the shoulder area. The pain is in bones of the shoulder joint. Other nearby bones, including the scapula (shoulder blade) and clavicle (collarbone), can also be painful.
Pain can reach down into muscles of the upper arm. The pain occurs at the front and side of the shoulder. It’s constant, even at rest and at night. Besides the pain, movement becomes very limited. It becomes very hard to lift the arm.
How Is Frozen Shoulder Diagnosed?
The doctor makes a diagnosis from a physical examination. The doctor may order x-rays to rule out other illnesses that may cause symptoms. These conditions include degenerative arthritis, tumors, and shoulder dislocation.
How Is Frozen Shoulder Treated?
When frozen shoulder occurs without an injury or operation, conservative treatment with physical therapy is best. When it develops after shoulder surgery, more aggressive treatment, including more surgery, may be needed. The doctor can prescribe different treatments, including nonsteroidal antiinfl ammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for pain. Sometimes, stronger pain pills are ordered if NSAIDs don’t help. The key to recovery is to keep moving. Physical therapy, home exercises, and occupational therapy can be prescribed to relieve pain and maintain arm movement. Occupational
therapy helps continue normal activities. The doctor may inject steroids into the joint itself. Very rarely, surgery or manipulation of the shoulder may be needed.After recovery, frozen shoulder usually won’t occur in the same shoulder. Sometimes the other shoulder can become frozen.
DOs and DON’Ts in Managing Frozen Shoulder:
✔ DO take pills as your doctor directs.
✔ DO follow all instructions from the physical and occupational therapists.
✔ DO exercises as instructed.
✔ DO call your doctor if you have symptoms that worry you.
✔ DO call your doctor if you have shoulder pain that doesn’t respond to rest and is related to decreased range of motion of the shoulder joint.
✔ DO use and move your shoulder normally. A frozen shoulder often follows periods of lack of use, or immobility, in a shoulder.
- DON’T forget to do exercises.
- DON’T stop your physical therapy without talking to your doctor.

I am 36 years old woman. I am suffering from cervical spondylosis from the past few years. My neck areas remain stiff. And when I study for long or sit at computer then I experience stiffness which spreads from neck to upper areas like nerve stiffness. Is there any remedy. Kindly suggest me. Also suggest me some calcium rich diets.
1. Pendulum Stretch
Do this exercise first. Relax your shoulders. Stand and lean over slightly, allowing the affected arm to hang down. Swing the arm in a small circle — about a foot in diameter. Perform 10 revolutions in each direction, once a day. As your symptoms improve, increase the diameter of your swing, but never force it. When you're ready for more, increase the stretch by holding a light weight (three to five pounds) in the swinging arm.
2. Towel Stretch
Hold one end of a three-foot-long towel behind your back and grab the opposite end with your other hand. Hold the towel in a horizontal position. Use your good arm to pull the affected arm upward to stretch it. You can also do an advanced version of this exercise with the towel draped over your good shoulder. Hold the bottom of the towel with the affected arm and pull it toward the lower back with the unaffected arm. Do this 10 to 20 times a day.
3. Finger Walk
Face a wall three-quarters of an arm's length away. Reach out and touch the wall at waist level with the fingertips of the affected arm. With your elbow slightly bent, slowly walk your fingers up the wall, spider-like, until you've raised your arm as far as you comfortably can. Your fingers should be doing the work, not your shoulder muscles. Slowly lower the arm (with the help of the good arm, if necessary) and repeat. Perform this exercise 10 to 20 times a day.
4. Cross Body Reach
Sit or stand. Use your good arm to lift your affected arm at the elbow, and bring it up and across your body, exerting gentle pressure to stretch the shoulder. Hold the stretch for 15 to 20 seconds. Do this 10 to 20 times per day.
