Re: Shoulder Surgery Question..Please Help

Welcome to the board, I wonder about WCB boards spending so much money on surgery and then not following up, and folks off work for so long. Do you have limitation in all shoulder ranges? Can you sleep on the sore shoulder? Is the pain in the shoulder only? If you push the range too far does it increase the pain? Is the pain greatest at night?
A frozen shoulder affects people from 40 to 60 usually. A traumatic arthritis comes on after an injury, somtimes only minor, and the really painfull phase lasts about 4 months and it may take up to a year to settle back to painfree. If it is a traumatic arthritis it will most likely do better than a true frozen shoulder. Has your Doc tried any injection into the capsule?
Every shoulder is different after a manipulation and you must follow up with a PT, your Doc should insist to the WCB. Good luck, keep us in touch.
