About Frozen Shoulders

What is it and what are my treatment options?

Frozen Shoulder Overview

Frozen shoulder is severe shoulder stiffness. When left untreated, frozen shoulder becomes worse and decreases the quality of life. A Carolina Orthopaedic and Neurosurgical Associates’ (CONA) shoulder specialist’s customized treatment plan quickly reduces symptoms and improves shoulder mobility.

Symptoms & Causes

Frozen shoulder symptoms include:

  • Decreased range of motion
  • Pain
  • Stiffness

The most common frozen shoulder cause is prolonged shoulder immobilization after a fracture or surgery.

Common Treatments:

Nonsurgical treatment options treat frozen shoulder. After a thorough evaluation, a CONA shoulder specialist may recommend:

  • Pain and anti-inflammatory medications
  • Physical therapy

A noninvasive shoulder manipulation may be recommended to treat severe frozen shoulder. General anesthesia is given so the patient feels no discomfort or pain. A CONA shoulder specialist moves the shoulder joint to loosen severely tight tissues and muscles.

I am happy with this practice all my questions are answered within 24 hours. Dr. Hoenig is great, his bedside manner is wonderful, he is very thorough, and makes personal calls after surgery to check on patients. I would definitely recommend to family and friends!

This has been one of my most positive experiences at a Dr's office. I was treated with respect and love. They made my surgical procedure less stressful and very positive.

These are the best group of doctors that myself & my family have ever been treated by in this field of medicine. They listen to how you feel instead of telling you how you feel. Thank you all for your caring & kindness.
