How can I tell if I am in the 'thawing' stage of frozen shoulder?

Posted , 2 users are following.

My shoulder range-of-motion is still highly restricted. However, I do not have continuous or even near-continuous pain. I only experience pain if the shoulder is moved beyond its current limits in terms of range of motion.

Is this thawing?

    sounds like you are over the hill with the FS . have you passed the zingger pain stage. if the pain is just at the end of range and the sudden movements do not trigger that pain ( everyone knows that pain ) from a frozen joint.


    but important keep on stretching the joint to encourage max ROM. you need to break that scar tissue down. and do not dwell keep it as active as possible in a kind way as not to start an ache off.


    also look after the other shoulder. keep that in check as well to avoid a second one. can tell you having two together is impossible to sleep with.
