What is the fastest way to heal a frozen shoulder?
Hello, my grandfather suffers from adhesive capsulitis. He recently from a Thrombectomy due to which he didn’t move his shoulder which resulted in a frozen shoulder. He developed it in an opposite shoulder. He is in pain we tried to consult a doctor, and we were refraining from visiting a hospital due to increasing cases of COVID-19? He has an appointment next week. Please suggest the fastest way to treat/heal a frozen shoulder.
@keagan Hello, It's unusual for frozen shoulder to recur in the same shoulder, some people develop it in the opposite shoulder. The bones, ligaments, and tendons that make up your shoulder joint are encased in a capsule of connective tissue. Frozen shoulder occurs when this capsule thickens and tightens around the shoulder joint, restricting its movement. People 40 and older, are more likely to have frozen shoulders. The fastest way to heal is range-of-motion exercises and, sometimes, corticosteroids and numbing medications injected into the joint capsule. Steroid injections. Injecting corticosteroids into your shoulder joint may help decrease pain and improve shoulder mobility, especially in the early stages of the process.
