Frozen Shoulder Treatment and Exercises

Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) can unfortunately take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years to recover. These exercises are designed to maintain your shoulder flexibility whilst you go through the natural process, as well as help restore your flexibility once the pain has settled and you are in the “thawing” phase.

Sometimes patients can achieve good relief early on by having an injection called hydro dilatation. This involves an injection of saline as well as cortisone to help expand and stretch the joint. You can read more about the procedure here

The exercises in the video should be started 1 week after having the injection. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us if your have any questions at
