The solution for this is provided on the ear injection thread.

Had Rotator cuff surgery a few years back was in a sling 24/7 for 6 weeks but well worth the ag as it's totally pain free.

It is a cnut in bed though trying to sleep as the sling is very cumbersome.

Mike,
Like Alan I've done both my rotator cuff. It will take about a year of exercises. I had physio and it wasn't just exercises they did. Really pulled it around, God knows where such a little lady got the strength from but afterwards felt really good.

I've been given the cold shoulder, before.

I wouldn't say it was frozen, just cold.

How do you wipe your arse with a frozen shoulder ?

You cook it till its dry allow it to cool then slice it very thinly like toilet paper.

Re: Frozen shoulder ??
mike, have you done the reach test? reach as far up a wall with your good arm, measure the distance and then try reaching up with the frozen side.

When I was first diagnosed my bad side was some 7 inches lower by reach. I embarked on the physio exercises and it took about three months of gradually improvement in reach until the measurements were identical. By that time my shoulder ache had more or less gone and I could thread a trouser's belt and sleep comfortably.

Had this - really debilitating for over a year

Cortosone injection and 6 physio sessions sorted it.

The cortosoone injection was amazing was better in half an hour! Just need the physio to keep it from freezing up again.

Personally I'd Pay for it, wasted a year with it.

Wait until we draw Wall in the Cup at the cesspit and windmill a few into the canal, should loosen it up.

Re: Frozen shoulder ??
I've done both rotator cuffs and both took 12 months of exercise to clear up.
Symptoms - difficulty reaching behind your back (like maybe putting a coat on) and pain when raising your arm.
Stand up with your arm straight down, hand flat against the side of your thigh (palm facing inward).
Now slowly raise your arm to the side, as high as you can. If, after the horizontal position your arm tends to drop back down (feels like you've lost all strength/feeling in it) it's almost certainly a rotator cuff problem. I had the same symptoms both times - a couple of years apart.

Re: Frozen shoulder ??
Both my shoulders have been frozen at some point, not at the same time, and on both occasions the same cure was 100% successful.

My first one was treated in lots of ways. Quarterzone(?) Injections and others that I can't remember.

Eventually they decided to " manipulate" the shoulder under general anesthetic. My shoulder was in so much pain when I tried any movement so I was happy to try anything.

When I came round they asked me if I could raise my arm, I could, and could swing it about without ANY sensitivity at all. My words were , "bloody hell, that's great, no pain whatsoever, what did you do?"
their answer was "You don't want to know"
Then a year or so later I got the same thing in my other shoulder, and they put me "under" and did the same again .

Not sure if I was just lucky or not but I had no soreness or tenderness in either shoulder immediately afterwards and haven't had ever since.

They did eventually tell me that what they did was set on me and pulled my arm in every direction rather forcefully.until I spose it freed itself .

Re: FROZEN SHOULDER ??
from the sound of it i dont think its a frozen shoulder at all, i can move it, its just certain direction movements really fucking hurt, i think maybe a rotator cuff injury sounds more likely

Re: FROZEN SHOULDER ??
had one a few years ago.
Saw a physio who manipulated/exercised it but he said it will just eventually come back on its own, in a matter of months.
Mine took 9 months I think.
All fine now.
