    Frozen Shoulder and its not even Winter!

    About 3 months ago my shoulder started giving me problems. Pain and loss of movement eventually lead me to consulting a Dr. where i was diagnosed with Frozen shoulder. Have you ever heard of such a thing? Oh well...the good news is, I still have one good shoulder to swing with and i will eventually get some or all of my movement back. The bad news is...It hurts!

    Anyhow, I hope to get back to digging when the weather gets a bit cooler.

    HH Everyone!

    My right shoulder and collarbone started throbbing about 2 weeks ago on and off. I think I slept on it wrong and today was horrid as it got cold last night.

    I'm going to have the house at 78 degrees all winter from the looks of it.

    Frozen shoulder is treatable but I forget what they do anymore.

    I had it after a shoulder injury and again after the surgery. There really isn't thing they can do but stretch it and it's like torture.
    Worst six months of my life.

    I have torn both my left left and right rotary cuff at different times. On my left shoulder it didnt heal properly and was causing me a lot of pain due to the job I was doing so I went back to doctor who did the surgery, the doctor wanted to do another surgery, both open and arthroscopic with a rehab that would take about a year according to him. I asked doctor if this would fix the problem and he said we hope so, it should, but said there could be complications. I asked what they were and he told me I could end up with a frozen shoulder. After he explained what a frozen shoulder was I declined the surgery and found a different job.

    I am very much against surgery. The last time i had surgery i had my eye removed and an infection almost took me out for good! I think i would rather live with a handicap than not live at all.

    Six years I lived with a frozen right shoulder and incredible pain. So I overused my left arm until one day I tried throwing a football and it finally started to release. In more time it got better but is going again at the rotator cuff.
    Had rotator cuff surgery on my left arm and it’s now been over a year and I can barely lift my arm above the horizontal plane.
    What really helps is to have someone (my wife) help support and lift the affected arm and slowly move it to positions that you can’t achieve and it will start to loosen up. Do this as many times per week that you can tolerate and you will see improvement sooner. Listen to your body and don’t overdo this stretching as a little goes a long way. Good luck!

    I forgot to add. If you have Osteoarthritis it very well may work against rapid improvement with the Physical Therapy.

    I don’t know how much overlap there is (if any?) between frozen shoulder and shoulder impingement syndrome. I battled the latter for about 3-4 years. The only surefire thing that ended up working was prolonged rest, doing my damnedest to keep my arm from going above parallel, and keeping the amount of weight I ever lifted during recovery at a minimal.

    Hopefully you are able to heal quickly, or at the very least find relief for the pain.

    Well, whatever is going on with me HATES metal detecting. When I was out for about 4 hours today, the longest since my surgery in June, it didn't bother me at all. Maybe I laid on a cat wrong

    I even climbed up a 10' or so sand bank to get off the beach. I took my digging sand scoop and cut a couple foot holds in it which held up!
