HSS Surgeon Explains How to Thaw That Frozen Shoulder

Stamford Daily Voice—July 5, 2016

In a recent article published by Stamford Daily Voice, Sabrina M. Strickland, MD, a sports medicine surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery, answers questions about frozen shoulder, including "What exactly is 'frozen shoulder'? How would I know if I'm suffering from this condition?".

Dr. Strickland answers, "A frozen shoulder is initially a painful shoulder without a history of trauma that then progresses to a painful stiff shoulder and eventually just a stiff shoulder. It is often difficult to diagnose, especially at the beginning. If you are experiencing shoulder pain and it is not improving with rest, I would recommend seeing a doctor specializing in shoulder issues."
