To help prevent frozen shoulder:
- Do regular strength training 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.
