Are you diabetic or having cervical spondylosis. If so is it under control. If you don’t know then get blood sugar fasting n x-ray of cervical spine (both ap n lateral) done from some lab. Try these exercises to help relieve your pain url/shoulders/stretching-exercises-frozen-shoulder 1.Arm-across-chest stretch – hold your right hand out in front of you, keeping it near your waist. Reach your left hand behind your elbow, pulling your right arm to the left and across your chest. If you feel pain in your shoulder, lower your arm until the pain subsides. The goal is to be able to pull your right arm across your chest without feeling any pain. Hold for 30-60 seconds then relax and repeat with your left arm. Repeat 3-5 times. 2. Neck release – sit up straight then slowly bring your chin toward your chest until you feel the stretch in the back of your neck. Try leaning your head to the left to stretch your right shoulder or leaning your head to the right to stretch your left shoulder. Hold the stretches up to one minute in each direction, breathing deeply as you concentrate on relaxing. Repeat 3-5 times. To progress the stretch, elevate your arm as you pull it across your chest until it is the height of your shoulder. 3. Chest expansion – put an exercise band, rope, strap, or even a tie behind your back and grasp it with both hands. While holding the strap, draw your shoulder blades toward each other and gently lift your chin toward the ceiling. Breathe deeply for 10 to 15 seconds and release. Repeat 3-5 times. To progress the stretch, move your hands closer together on the strap. 4. Seated twist – sit straight up in a chair with your knees together. Twist your torso to the right, placing your left hand on the outside of your right thigh. Relax your shoulders as you look towards your right, gentling pushing on your right thigh. Breathe deeply for 10 to 15 seconds and release. Repeat with your left side. Repeat both sides 3-5 times. 5. The 90, 90 shoulder stretch – stand in a doorway, holding your arms up so your elbow is at a 90 degree angle and your arm forms a 90 degree angle to your body at the shoulder. Place each hand on one of the sides of the door frame, placing one foot forward as you stand up straight aligning your neck with your spine. Lean forward as you brace yourself against the door frame. Hold the stretch for 20-30 seconds. Repeat 2-3 times. For this homeopathic treatment is very effective for more details you can consult me.

No, if its because of nerve problem in neck region then no correlation with stomach problem. But there are many other problems which can cause shoulder n stomach pain. .since when r you having this?What r other symptoms that you r experiencing? By doing what like walking, exertion, eating or empty stomach- it increases or decreases in intensity. For how much time it remains? Is there stiffness also? How is your appetite?R you constipated or having loose stools? Any problem in urine?I need details of the case.

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. 5. Armpit stretch using your good arm, lift the affected arm onto a shelf about breast-high. Gently bend your knees, opening up the armpit. Deepen your knee bend slightly, gently stretching the armpit, and then straighten. With each knee bend, stretch a little further, but don't force it. Do this 10 to 20 times each day. Starting to strengthen as your range of motion improves, add rotator cuff–strengthening exercises. Be sure to warm up your shoulder and do your stretching exercises before you perform strengthening exercises. 6. Outward rotationhold a rubber exercise band between your hands with your elbows at a 90-degree angle close to your sides. Rotate the lower part of the affected arm outward two or three inches and hold for five seconds. Repeat 10 to 15 times, once a day. 7. Inward rotation stand next to a closed door, and hook one end of a rubber exercise band around the doorknob. Hold the other end with the hand of the affected arm, holding your elbow at a 90-degree angle. Pull the band toward your body two or three inches and hold for five seconds. Repeat 10 to 15 times, once a day. Shoulder exercises and stretches regular exercises and stretches can keep your shoulder strong and flexible. A few things to remember before swinging in to exercises: •stop any exercise if you have more shoulder pain. It may be too soon for you to try. •watch your form. Exercising incorrectly can also cause or worsen shoulder problems. •warm up, even before deep stretching. Light shoulder rolls, gentle movements, or even a warm shower are all ways to warm up your muscles before exercise and stretching. Pendulum stretch for range of motion•stand and bend at the waist. •let your arm on the injured side hang straight down. •keep your neck relaxed. •move your arm in a circle up to 20 times. •do once or more times in a day. Overhead shoulder stretch•sit or stand to do this shoulder stretch. •intertwine your fingers in front of you. •bend your elbows and raise your arms above your head. You can also place your hands on your head or behind it. •gently squeeze your shoulder blades together to move your elbows back. •continue for up to 20 repetitions. Repeat 5 to 10 times a day.Do’s and don’ts for shoulder pain do’s: do the prescribed exercise regularly to maintain strength, flexibility and range of motion. Do keep the affected affected arm supported supported. Don’ts: do not sleep on the affected affected side. Do not lift heavyweight with the affected arm. Do not jerk your shoulder shoulder to avoid stress. ¾ don't use the arm to push yourself up in bed or from a chair because this requires forceful contraction of muscles. Don't participate in contact sports or do any repetitive heavy lifting. We suggest you to wear shoulder support brace which is available in two different sizes which makes the patient to feel comfortable as it maintains the shoulder in anatomical position and the short lever is maintained. The reason to maintain the short lever in the shoulder joint is it helps the shoulder to prevent the movements which itself is the key to have better progression of healing in the shoulder region. This is suggested for the following conditions do’s: •exercise regularly and immediately follow a physical therapy program. •use an ice pack for pain relief. Apply the ice pack 3-4 times a day for 10 minutes. •take pain relievers as directed by your shoulder doctor. •consult a shoulder specialist if conservative frozen shoulder treatment fails to return the shoulder to normal. •do follow the directions of doctors for pain relief. •do your mobility exercises on both sides. •do pay attention to your sleep. •a good night’s sleep can aid in proper inflammatory processes and help heal damaged tissue. Growth hormone is released during sleep at night and helps recovery. Don’ts: •don’t stop moving your shoulders entirely because of the pain. •do not do activities that involve sudden movements, such as heavy lifting on the affected side. As your body recovers, continue to make gentle movements, but avoid irritating and moving your shoulders. •doesn’t sleep on a sore shoulder •don’t miss your workout routine and physical therapy. •don’t neglect your diet. Frozen shoulder is associated with general health. Frozen shoulder is strongly associated with many low-grade systemic inflammatory conditions. Your body needs healthy, anti-inflammatory food to recover. •do not be afraid. You are not alone. •stop smoking and drinking alcohol.
