Re: partial frozen shoulder

I had surgery for shoulder spurs and did therapy. Then it froze. the Dr. said give it time that rarely do any of his shoulder surgeries get frozen shoulder. I continued therapy and the therapist says that I've got to talk to the dr. because we can't make any progress since it's frozen. I see the dr. and he says we can either go in and take care of the adhesions or do more therapy. Well duh, I said I need to get the adhesions taken care of with the manipulation under Anesthesia (MUA). Within one week I was much better and did a little more therapy until I was released. Without going in and doing the manipulation, I would have still had the frozen shoulder which was difficult. Be strong with your doctor.
