Did you have pain in the thawing stage, either at rest or after exercise?

Posted , 3 users are following.

For those who have made it towards the end of frozen shoulder, did you still have pain during the thawing phase? Did you have pain after trying to move your shoulder further, whether with daily activities or with range of motion exercises, or did it just feel stiff? How do you know when you're moving from the frozen to thawing stage (which is the best time to start range of motion exercises). Thanks!

    You know the tight feeling you get when you try to touch your toes and you stretch too far? That's what it feels like. Not the inflammatory oh-my-gosh-I'm-gonna-keel-over-in-pain feeling like you had during the freezing stage. I was almost euphoric when I noticed I could reach further one day than the day before. Yes, if you jolt too hard too fast, you'll get a zinger, but not like at the beginning. Yay! Progress!
