A frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition where the capsule surrounding the shoulder joint tightens, leading to a loss of shoulder motion in multiple directions. The condition can follow a traumatic or overuse shoulder injury, be related to an underlying medical condition, or develop with no underlying cause. Treatment usually involves working to increase range of motion with a physical therapist. Manipulation of the shoulder under anesthesia or arthroscopic surgery to release the capsule is occasionally needed. Often doing some exercises for a frozen shoulder can relieve your pain and allow you to get back to what you love to do.

I had to have my frozen shoulder "manipulated" they put me under and broke it up. Very painful. I have been using these exercises to get my motion back and loosen it up. GREAT results. The little discomfort is better then the pain of a frozen shoulder. THANK YOU!!
