Latest on Frozen Shoulder
Could it be possible to “cure” a frozen shoulder in 90 seconds? Impossible, right? Well before we get into that, it is important to understand that most people that have suffered from frozen shoulder, have had to go through months and even years of therapy to get rid of just some of their symptoms…with many still never really get rid of the problem.
I just saw a new article in the San Francisco Chronicle abouta a new frozen shoulder brace that you wear at night.
For many persons using ROTATORELIEVER™ the major benefit is that they can avoid medications and can cancel scheduled shoulder surgeries which are costly (typically $12,500) and require intensive rehab afterwards, and extensive time off work. For most people who suffer from rotator cuff pain, frozen shoulder or shoulder bursitis it’s enough to return to normal day to day activities.
Now I don’t know if the brace works or not but there were 2 key points from the article.
1) Even with the brace you need to still be doing some sort of frozen shoulder exercise.
2) You can cure frozen shoulder without the need for surgery or physical therapy.

Today we will finish our look at the stages of frozen shoulder with the third or Thawing Stages of Frozen Shoulder. As the name suggests, it is during this stage that you will start to get your range of motion back. This stage can actually last between 4 months and 2 years!
The second stage of frozen shoulder is called the Frozen Stage. This is the stage where the shoulder is actually frozen. You have reached this stage of frozen shoulder is you cannot move your shoulder. The pseudo good news about this stage is that the pain you were suffering during the last stage has mainly gone away; but the stiffness is worse.
Frozen shoulder is a dilating condition that generally progresses through three different stages. The Freezing Stage, The Frozen Stage, and The Thawing Stage. In the video above I discuss the Freezing Stage of frozen shoulder. The freezing stage can last up to 9 months.
