A frozen shoulder is characterised by stiffness and pain on the shoulder joint. This stiffness and pain limits one's range of motion and may in turn greatly affect daily activities. From putting on clothing for work or reaching for objects overhead, these limiting movements may be disheartening and frustrating for some. However, there are ways to unfreeze your frozen shoulder and regain the range of motion in your shoulder.
To help reduce the pain and inflammation, your doctor may prescribe anti-inflammatory pain relievers. Electrical nerve stimulation is another alternative approach to alleviate pain. An X-ray and an MRI maybe required by your doctor to determine the cause of your shoulder pain.
Stretching exercises are important in gradually improving your mobility and strengthening the muscles that stabilise your shoulder.
