Frozen shoulder is very common in diabetic patients ...it is caused by micro traumas to the area which leads to gradual adhesion formation in the capsule around shoulder joint n then reduction of movement. Control of diabetics along with good physiotherapy is the answer to ur mom's suffering .it does take time to improve n u should be religious in following the therapy...to get results ...The sooner u start the better

It is a case of Frozen Shoulder. Can be better treated with a local injection of Kenacort or Depomedrol in Acromioclavicular joint and shoulder joint.This can then be followed by physiotherapy and analgesics. If little or no improvement is gained following this procedure, there is an option of "Manipulation under Short GA", which is small surgical procedure to gain the extra movement.

Hi there I understand your concern... Operation is not only modality of treatment....The aim of treatment is to ease pain and stiffness; also, to keep the range of shoulder movement as good as possible...this can be achieved by pain killers and anti inflammatory agents...Physiotherapist they may try other pain-relieving techniques such as warm or cold temperature packs and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) machines...Consult nearest orthopedic surgeon they will do the needful.
