A small incision is made in the shoulder. Special small instruments are inserted through the incision. The tightened tissues are released. The shoulder is manipulated. Physical therapy must be done after this surgery.
If you are diagnosed with a frozen shoulder, follow your doctor's
and range of motion exercises. This will help maintain a strong and flexible shoulder joint.
Seek prompt treatment for a shoulder injury.
Do activities that use your shoulder joint regularly.
After any injury to the upper extremity (hand, wrist, elbow, etc), always move the shoulder through a full range of motion several times a day. This is true even when lying in bed for an illness such as a lung infection.
