A frozen shoulder is when the shoulder loses functional range of motion, begins to stiffen, and becomes painful. A Physical Therapist can perform passive stretching as tolerated for your pain level, prescribe exercises and stretches targeted for your functional goals, apply electrical stimulation units to assist with pain relief and provide education around pain management strategies.
If any of the below symptoms match what you’re experiencing, it’s time to schedule an appointment with a PT!
