Frozen Shoulder - What did you do and did it work

I went through the same thing after a rotator cuff repair.  Physical Therapist had to break the scar tissue out three times a week to get the range of motion back.  Looking back, I would have gone for the manipulation.  PT works but takes a long time.  Also it will take a year to heal and get to feeling normal.  Hope it gets better.  It is Rough!

Sounds like there is a number of us that have had similar injuries and results.

PT and time finally worked for me.  I went to see the surgeon that did the surgery and asked for the manipulation.  When he checked my range of motion, the amount I would gain off of the manipulation was negligible. I did the exercises I learned in PT in my garage.  They work but really slow.  I would suggest checking with your surgeon.  I've also know a few others that had shoulder issues and it happens more often than you think.  Good Luck.

Surgery done. Now to get going on the rehabilitation. Post op pain was made more bearable by the fact the nurse looking after me was both a very good nurse and absolutely stunning IMG_0488.JPG

PT this main the shoulder. It was evaluation day. Came in at 145’ range of motion goal is 160’ minimum. Therapist figured 2 more sessions thane break me loose and do exercises at home like I do now.
Therapist also recommended that I should start hitting balls, not go crazy but just start chipping to 3/4 iron shots.
NO LONG CLUBS.
Going to range in the morning and hit some shots, SWMBO as usual is supervising carefully

Saw my surgeon today. He's happy with my progress, and reassured me I have nothing left in the joint to get in the way. He gave me some images from my scope, and even with my limited experience of arthroscopic images I could clearly see how inflamed it was. Pain is now better than it was pre-op, and the heavy duty pain meds are behind me. Now it's up to me to stretch everything around the joint by putting the work in on my rehab.

I then had my second PT session, which went well. I'm pretty sure I'll be very sore later tonight, but my range was certainly better than last week. It's going to take a fair bit of work on both my tendons and my nerves to convince them my shoulder can now move. Small steps but I'll get there eventually.

I need to work on my patience and switching off my mind so I can stretch more effectively.

My first frozen shoulder (right) took about 18 months to come right. I used just pain relief. 

Soon after, my left shoulder froze. I invented my own healing exercise and the problem disappeared in just a few weeks! 

Simply link your hands together in front of your chest then pull for a minute or two. Repeat this several times a day and all should soon be well.

3 months ago I had Bicep tendonesis , decompression, Frozen shoulder repair scar tissue removed and manipulation. Left shoulder righty golfer.

Surgery went well but they found a big piece of cartilage 1 cm , Range of motion after diligent therapy is great  and since winter in WI no need to rush back but I am back to lifting pressing is a challenge but pulling is back to normal feeling and strength is improving as well.

 

I couldn't get my wallet out before surgery and can touch between my shoulder blades now.

 

Don't know if the cartilage broke free during manipulation or was always there but overall it 

My concern is I still get catches and my surgeon is talking about a plug of cadaver cartilage as a replacement. Rotator cuff is in great shape.

 

Was wondering if anyone has heard of  https://www.arthrosurface.com/   they have great testimonials from powerlifters and crossfitters but not too much from golf. Anyway I meet the surgeon again in two weeks ill see what he thinks. Good luck and do your therapy it's critical to a good outcome. MY PT sai it is true with this stuff no pain no gain.

I don’t have Frozen Shoulder....I’ve been dealing with Impingement syndrome and a slightly torn rotator cuff for about 2 years. My doctor gave my 2 options, surgery or PT and steroid injections.

I chose the PT and injections. I only get the injections as needed and I have been doing most of my PT at home for the last year.

I can definitely tell when I don’t do my stretches and exercises for a few days. I take anti inflammatory meds before I play and make sure I stretch and warm up.

I have lost some of my range of motion but for the most part I’m much better, surgery is always an option later..but I’m glad I stuck with the PT for now.

PT is underrated. I did same as you on left shoulder and works. Unfortunately right shoulder was a torn mess and had it rebuilt, should be good for another 100,000 miles.

I had a cortisone shot and then went to physical therapy for about three weeks. I continued the therapy at home for another two to three weeks. This was during the winter in Indiana. By the time the golf season started I was ready to start swinging a club. It took a couple of weeks to get back to 100%. For a while, I wasn't sure I would ever golf again. I waited too long to get it evaluated.

How did it become frozen? My wife asked if I could swim the butterfly. I did a couple of laps and the shoulder was history. It sucks to get old. Needless to say, no more butterfly.
