Thanks for writing in,

Frozen shoulder is a condition which occurs in this age group who are suffering from Diabetis Mellitus (Sugar) or who have undergone Angioplasty or Bypass surgery. It is not associated with any injury or any sports activities.

There might be some kind of stiffness or restriction of movement of your right shoulder while trying to do overhead activities or touching your back. It is a self resolving condition usually settles down within 12- 18 months.

Physiotherapy is the main modality of treatment - shoulder wheel exercises to improve movement of your shoulder with or without Ultrasound therapy to the shoulder.

In cases of acute pain you can take NSAID's SOS with Ice pack application over the shoulder. Control of Diabetis Mellitus is of prime importance to reduce the frequency of such attacks. Discuss with your doctor.

Hope i have clarified your query.
Get well soon.
