Anybody have advice on treatments for frozen shoulder? The surjeons here say operations are mainly for pain. I don't have much pain-just limited movement. Wouldn't a replacement do the trick though? I can only raise my are to about straight out in front. The elbow works of course so I can reach overhead a short way. I had rotator cuff rapair about thirty years ago-they put a staple in. The doctor said the frozen condition which only started to happen maybe five years ago was the result of the way they did surjury back then.
