    Im so surprise to find someone with a frozen hip. I was thinking, maybe is not what I thought I had since nobody replay to my discusion. Im wondering how are you doing now? I have frozen hip since I would say December 2012 and Im still suffering. I do not have any rotation yet and Im wondering if you finally got healed?

    Thanks I hope we can communicate since I do not see anyone suffering from the same condition.

    Probably you can find my all history here under frozen hip or adhesive capsulitis of the hip, just like you Im so desperate to find someone to see if we have more or less the same symptoms.

    I hope by now you are doing better , because Im not.

    Have a great day,

    I'm still under lot of pain, some days are better then others. I thought I would be ok by now. I had physio, accupuncture, light and laser therapy, chiropractor (this help me with alignment, after months of limping) actually I feel like I need to go back to chiropractor just now. Few months ago I thought I was getting better after 2 cortisone shots. The first shot was good for about a month, the second one didn't help at all.

    I'm so desperate now, here in Canada is not easy to see a doctor specialist, after a year of waiting he told me doesn't feel comfortable doing anything on my hip since he never saw a case like mine. I guess the

    y are not very common.

    I will keep you updated, hopefully this will resolve soon some how. Please keep me updated I would love to know how yours is evolving. Is hard to find someone that recognize this hip problem as a frozen hip or adhesive capsulitis.

    All the best and fast recovery for you. Please keep me posted.

    Thanks a lot for your response. I really appreciate it.

    i have had frozen hips for about 6 years -- although i am almost cured.  i have been doing lots of stretches ---- takes time and patience but you must perservere -- relief came bit by bit  ---- i can now walk and stretch without pain thank god . -- i did these stretches on my own  --  i don't know if doing stretches under supervision of a physiotherepist would have been faster but i am better now.  consists of about 10 different stretches --- a stretch for just about every angle and direction..   -- hope you do okay

      Hi Reg84010,

      Just wondering how are you doinf with your hips? Did somebody diagnosed you with adhesive capsulitis "or "frozen hip? Did you have them both frozen at the same time. Did you go through all the stages of adhesive capsultis? why is taking you thal long.

      I had frozen hip for over a year and I just had MUA manipulation under anestecia and my movement is much better. Wondering why didnt you try any therapy and waited this long 6 years???

      Thanks a lot for all your info and I hope you are better now.

      All the best

      Hello!  I am not in the UK (US here), but have not been able to get a doctor or physical therapist to recognize this condition, and I've been suffering since 2011.  Could you give a little more informaiton about what worked and if you were able to fully recover?  I would appreciate it so much!

      Thank you!!

      Hi Emily,

      I'm in the US, too. I think we're in the same boat. I have been suffering from leg stiffness, weakness, numbness, etc for about five years. I've had P.T., pool therapy, accupuncture, facet joint injections, and seen a neurologist, rheumatologist, peripheral nerve surgeon, 2 spine surgeons, etc. They did every test under the sun and came up with idiopathic neuropathy. I got to where I had to stop working and move back home with my parent because I couldn't stand more than a minute or two and could barely walk.

      Fast forward 10 months later and I can suddenly stand this week. I have been taking more vitamin D and B12 (I run low on both) and working my trigger points and using a Light Relief 90LR15LR01 Infrared Pain Relief Device with an extra large pad on my hips and back. This is available on Amazon and worth its weight in gold. I had never heard of frozen hips until I suddenly started unfreezing (I worked in healthcare 25 years!!) Now that I found the topic, my symptoms make more sense. I am slowly working on stretching and strengthening my legs. I feel like i'm on newborn Bambi legs, but the stiffness is suddenly gone.

      I hope this helps. I lost my good insurance when I quit my job, and moved across the country, so I can't follow up with anyone. I would appreciate any and all input.

      Hi Nancy....congrats on your results.

      I want to be sure what the turning point was for you....was it the vitamins and the light relief....or just time.

      I am doing PT 3 times a wk and it is getting worse. Any info you can give would be greatly appreciated.

      Thank you, Martha

    I have been suffering for almost 4 years with frozen hip and have spent countless hours stretching and thousands of various modalities -- accupuncture, ART, Physical therapy, etc.  I am often able to open my hip slightly more after these exercises and manipulations, BUT IT ALWAYS RETURNS TO FROZEN after an hour or so.

      Sorry to  heard you are suffering this terrible condition. Im sure I suffer this for many years beside avascular necrosisi. I had a hip replacement and Im almost back to normal.

      Check what a hip replacement would do for you, maybe is the way to go, consult with your doctor.

      Wishing you all the best!!!hope you find the solution to your problem, took me 5 years to fix my problem.

      Many blessings!!!
