What is the best procedure to treat a frozen shoulder?

Orthopaedic Surgery Sport Medicine

I’m in my 50s and suffering from shoulder pain for about 5 months now. An MRI result showed that I have Adhesive Capsulitis (frozen shoulder). Kindly advise what’s the best procedure for treating a frozen shoulder. Thanks in advance! 

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (1)

Thank you for your question.  I would like to direct you to the article on frozen shoulders here that I wrote a few months back as it might be helpful.

There are various treatments/procedures available for frozen shoulders including 

1. Physiotherapy

2. Ultrasound guided injections

3. Hydrodilatations

4. Surgical treatments

Depending on what you have/haven’t tried (and depending on what your physician or hospital is able to provide) you could try any combination of these.

Hope this helps.
