    Is Shoulder stiffness permanent?

    Hello all, I am 59, since a few years now, I woke up one morning and could not raise my right arm above shoulder level, I know other people who have the exact same thing and have always been told there's nothing which can be done about this.

    Is this accurate and does it mean I will never have full functionality of my right arm like I used to for the rest of my life please?

    Sounds like you perhaps have a shoulder impingement. PT should take care of that easily. Go see your doc and get sent to PT - you've waited way too long to get moving on this.
