Step Up

Scott, my advice is to submit to the torture and do whatever the therapist says. Unlike DC, frozen shoulder can be beaten, but not without effort.

Step Up

Scott:

Don't mess around with Frozen Shoulder. I agree......If they wanted the "detainees" to "talk", all they need to do is put them though this therapy. You're not lying down for nothing. Keeps the blood flowing to the brain so you don't pass out. Been there done that. But *Step Up Scott*. Get it done. And don't neglect the work at home.

Dup & FS

My husband had both shoulders frozen and had manipulation done to both under anesthesia. He has had surgery on both hands. I always thought there was a link but the doctors said no. After reading everyones experiences, I am convinced! He just had his right hand operated on March 18th and is in terrible pain. His left hand was way less painful. By the way...he also has it in his left foot in the arch and we never linked his limp to it until recently. The doctor says not to have surgery on his foot. Apparently it's not as successful as hand surgery. Thanks for enlightening us. My sympathy goes out to all of you for having such a devastating disease.

Frozen shoulder

Thanks for the input. Just didn't know PT. would be that painful. I'll step back up to the plate, and hope it gets easier.

Study : Of 50 Frozen Shoulder - 29 Had Dup

Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) is, like Dupuytren's, a case of type III collagen building up where it shouldn't.

Biospecifics has, in the past, announced FDA trials for injectable collagenase as a treatment for frozen shoulder and one would expect it to be potentially very effective. Unfortunately, as with their other trials, the years go by and nothing more is heard.

Frozen Shoulder

I had a frozen shoulder a few years ago and at the same time had DC in my right hand pinky.
I tried cortisone in the shoulder, muscular skeletal treatment, chiropractic, physiotherapists and others. For about a year nothing worked until a friend at a barbeque said try swimming laps of the pool. That was my main sport.
Bingo!!! Cured within a couple of weeks.
Do freestyle, backstroke, and breastroke - slowly, and stretch out a bit further each session.
I cannot stress the enough the almost immediate beginings of a recovery. Pushing through the first couple of sessions of pain is confronting though.

FS , DC & LD

I have had DC in left hand for 5 years - not bad enough for treatment - progression is quite slow. LD in Left foot & I think now starting in right. Also just recovering from a case of FS. It was suspected that was a result of a cycling accident lat year. Cortisone didn't help the shoulder, so had hydro-dilatation where they injected a saline solution into the shoulder capsule under untrasound. Can be a somewhat painful for a short period for some people, although mine was OK. That is standard treatment for FS & accelerates recovery.

Dup~sq~s and Shoulder

I had surgery in my left hand last August for DC in the index finger and little finger. I now have "pads" on almost all of my knuckles(both hands). I had "pads"removed in my late 30's, and the Dr. thought they were ganglion cysts. We now know they were connected to DC. The DC is back in my left palm and in the joint of my ring finger (left). I have two nodules in my left foot and am suffering a frozen shoulder now. I have had 3 cortisone shots and Physical Therapy (extremely painful) for 6 weeks. I think the DC is in the shoulder, and that there is a definite connection. Has anyone had surgery on the shoulder with DC association and had success? Thanks. Vikki
