Customer Question
Mra says have some...

Mra says have some evidence of frozen shoulder. Can that cause neck pain?

Doctor's Assistant: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Doctor can help you best.

I had cervica disc replacement but still have pain in area between shoulder and neck. Mayo clinic says could be shoulder problem. Mra says frozen shoulder and fraying of superior portion of glenoidnlabrum

Doctor's Assistant: Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?

The disc surgery didn't solve my pain and I had a ski accident three years ago that caused all this. Is this a free service?

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.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
