Re: FROZEN SHOULDER

Thanks Steph!

Since I posted I looked at the providers listed here on the site and I'm seeing Dr. Fleiss in Manhattan on Monday. I sent him an email and he replied with this:

"Cortisone injections in the shoulder are usually very helpful. Without injections, the thawing process may take two years or more, and in patients with Dupytren's, the thawing process may never occur. If the fibrosis in the shoulders is long-standing, arthroscopic release may be needed."

so we'll see what he says. I'm still encouraged by eveyone here who say their shoulders thawed.

cheers!

I wonder if the doctor has real evidence that with DD frozen shoulder may never thaw. Doctors always seem to want to intervene so how would they meet someone where it didn't thaw. In my case it was a text book freeze and unfreeze. The actions I took seemed like it shortened the time it took but I'm not certain since I don't know what would have happened if I had done nothing.

Re: FROZEN SHOULDER

Excellent point. I'll ask him exactly that, and report back.

Re: FROZEN SHOULDER

I have DS in each hand and got shoulder pain in both shoulders two years ago that limited my range of motion. I could barely reach my coat sleeve behind my back to remove my coat and never without those twinges of disabling pain in the shoulders. I looked into it and found that the Japanese have a term "50's shoulder" and I was almost 50. I got the book "How to treat your own rotator cuff injury" and did the exercises in it with stretch bands. I also started eating a can of salmon a day for the joint-friendly fish oils and vit. D. Within a few months, it went away. Hasn't been back since. That's my case history, anyway. I'd recommend trying the salmon each day like a vitamin pill, instead of one, in fact, and doing those exercises to build up your shoulder muscles. You can beat this thing!!
