I have had both of my shoulders frozen many years ago. If treatment is delayed they typically will become more and more frozen and then it may be very difficult to move them at all. There can be much pain involved. I had physical therapy for my first frozen shoulder, and did the exercises at home as well as during the sessions with my therapist. I took about a year until my shoulder was normal again. The second shoulder occurred a few years later. I did the same exercises at home by myself. That shoulder is about 90% normal now.

Thank you for sharing your experience. I think I will cancel my appointment for shoulder manipulation. I will continue to work at it and be patient.

I had frozen shoulder which started about a year before I was dx'd w/diabetes. I didn't see a dr, partially because I didn't have insurance at the time. It took about a year for it to totally heal. I did see improvement after about 3 months, and every so often, it would get a little better. Good luck!
