    Hi Karen

    The longer frozen shoulder, the more difficult the recovery.

    Perhaps consider taking a non prescription NSAID for three weeks to get the inflammation down.

    and acetaminophen 500 mg no closer than 6 hours around the clock to help with the pain.

    Psck it in ice 20 minutes.

    Then pack it in heat 20 minutes

    Conclude with 29 monutes of ice.

    Now slowly, gently get your shoulder moving with the aid of your other arm.

    kind regards

    It really hasn't done me much good, they just dish out painkillers, see an oseopath.

    Hi Karen....everyone is different as my consultant said....depends on the pain...mine started June...the pain was chronic. .I couldn't stand it any longer...my life stopped....a month after a MUA I am practically pain free except when I go to physio...it shortens the suffering. ..good luck

    Hi Karen,

    who has stated that you have frozen shoulder? I was at a neurosurgeon owing to problems with my cervical spine and he said i think you also have a problem with your shoulder, so I went to an othopedic and he said it was frozen. My GP has signed me off work for 4 weeks, had a cortisone shot on Monday and this seems to have helped quite a lot with the pain, but not the actual movement, still might need surgery but I'll have to see how things work out.

      Sort of self diagnosed myself through the internet. The past 3 months shoulder pain and the lack of movement is becoming a bit worrying. I sneezed today and the pain in my shoulder brought me to tears. Laid in bed now with a hot water bottle and taken ibruprofen. Had a type of pain my shoulder for over 6 months but recently more noticable.
