Hello there.... Forzen shoulder is a common condition after 60 years ....it is more common in diabetic patients.... there are 3 basic principals to follow in case of Frozen shoulder..... 1) keeping sugar levels in check 2)minimize pain 3)improve range of motion 4)improve strength 1st condition can be taken care by a physician...for the other 3 points a physical therapist is a must. Remember Adhesive capsulitis/Frozen shoulder is a considerably poor prognostic condition so overnight miracles should not be expected.A recovery of frozen shoulder is slow and takes 3-5 months to be fully fit. During this time symptomatic treatment should be carried out through electrotherapy and ROM exercises /mobilization technique.to make the patients lifestyle as optimum as possible. Do write to me in detail regarding your fathers condition in detail also x rays and calcium levels are to be rechecked.
