Frozen shoulder

Posted by jaysnh721 @jaysnh721, Sep 12, 2019

Does anyone have suggestions as to how to sleep with frozen shoulder. Am a side sleeper

Hello @jaysnh721, Welcome to Connect. I am a side sleeper myself and frequently have pain in my arms that causes me to do a lot of tossing and turning during the night. I ran across a YouTube video that may be helpful for you – How to sleep with a painful shoulder

Did your doctor offer any suggestions?

@jaysnh721, @johnbishop, Good morning to both of you and I would like to add my welcome to Connect @jaysnh721. This is a great solution for shoulder pain. Another idea that my orthopedic surgeon came up with to avoid having to wear a sling or demobilizer all the time is this…..wear a snazzy vest. Hold the front edge while sitting or walking so that your arm is placed just like the model's in the video.

If at all possible practice checking your body alignment frequently. Sometimes when we are favoring a painful appendage, our body and spine get out of alignment. So lie down and just imagine a string that runs from your nose to between your toes. If it is straight then your spine is perfectly aligned.

Do you know what caused your frozen shoulder? Was it an injury or surgery? May you find relief from pain today. Chris
