Dear Concerned.,

Thanks for writing to us.

The symptoms you are referring to in all probabality points towards a condition called Frozen Shoulder. This usually follows unusually giving rest to your joint due to trauma/arthritis/ associated co- morbid conditions such as Diabetes etc . The result of a sterile inflammation in the joint called Adhesive Capsulitis develops gradually in the less used joint .Usually it affects more in women (Post Menopausal)than men.This causes Pain/ stiffness/ reduction in the range of motion due to scar tissue formation .

The above condition may be also associated with Chronic Co Morbid Conditions such as Hypothyroidism/NIDDM(Diabetes)/Old trauma such as Rotator Cuff Injury.

The above condition is gradual in onset/course and takes long time for remission.

The orthopedic Surgeon usually confirms it through X-ray/Arthrogram/Arthroscopy and treats the same with NSAIDs and Arthroscopic Surgery.

Gentle Excercises with extended motions in a Physiotherapy Centre usually relieves the symptoms.

My advice is for you to treat the shoulder condition separately from your Hypothyroidism/Depression/Hyperacidity(as described in your treatment history) and Consult an ortho surgeon who can treat the above by an Arthroscopic procedure.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.,

Best Regards,

Dr Lt Cdr ASN Bhushan.
