My right shoulder is in a sling. I have frozen shoulder.

I have to take a break from baking and decorating. The physical therapist gave me exercises to increase range of motion.

Has any members had shoulder issues such as a frozen shoulder.

How long did it take your shoulder to get full range of motion.

I guess I want to get well soon so I can bake cakes!!!!!

I had a shoulder spasm after a car accident. One shoulder was a couple inches higher than the other and the muscles on my back on that side felt rock hard (very unusual for me LOL). I could still move my arm but it was sore. It took about a month of using a heat pad every day, taking ibuprofen, and using massage on the shoulder to get it back to normal.

I hope you feel better soon! Make sure you rest and follow those exercises so that you really get better. If you don't have a heating pad, it's a big help for stuff like this.

I agree that is exactly what my dh had to do with his shoulder heating pad and ibuprofen was what the Dr. told him

Oh no! I hope you feel better soon!

I see my massage therapist about every third-fourth week. Without her I would probably be disabled.


Baking is a very physical job.

Thanks for the tips. My husband is going to buy me a heating pad.
