Hello,

I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.
Neck muscles and shoulder have common muscles called as shoulder girdle. So neck issues can cause shoulder problems and vice versa. Majority of people with frozen shoulder will respond to physical therapy alone. The program should be aggressive, daily and assisted by the physical therapist. The regimen consists of active and active-assistive range-of-motion exercises combined with stretching. Pain may occur early but within six to eight weeks progress is usually made. Other treatment modalities such as heat and massage may help. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory analgesics may also be beneficial. Deep electrotherapy in the form of short wave diathermy, Interferential current, trans cutaneous electrical stimulation, iontophoresis, phonophoresis also are very help initially.

Those people who do not respond to the initial physical therapy are considered for the following;

1) A subacromial corticosteroid injection

2) A glenohumeral intra articular injection combined with saline dilation

3) Manipulation under anesthesia

4) Surgery; arthroscopic or open releases

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
