I got mine after a rousing game of tennis. Did almost 6 months of therapy referred by an orthopod who also wanted to do carpal tunnel surgery. I kept saying it all connects with an upper back strain/injury from serving. Doc said it was a classic case of capsulitis. I said it hurts bad and I just want to get rid of it.

After doing what the medical profession said I "should" do, I went to a chiropractor and now feel much better. No surgery needed for the frozen shoulder or the carpal tunnel.

i had a frozen shoulder quite a number of years ago, after the birth of my first son. I was told it was from pushing on the rails of the bed, ( I had him in 1976 so there were no epidurals). Chiropractor helped me soooo much!!

Howdy brow­nmic­hele­na! WELCOME to DiabeticConnect!

Mayo clinic has a multi part article about Frozen Shoulder (more accurately "Adhesive capsulitis ") which tells about treatment options in one of the pages. Read the article here ~

I pray you get relief from this sometime soon!
