Lebed Method "Frozen Shoulder Exercises"
Lebed Method "Resistance Work for Strengthening Frozen Shoulder"
Do you have a shoulder that radiates pain at the slightest movement of it beyond a limited parameter? Is your rotator cuff so tender and sore, you have severely restricted range of motion? Does your painful, stiff shoulder make it difficult to work or sleep?
It could be frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis.
If you have arthritis or decreased whole body exercise routines (being too sedentary: sitting around too much), or other muscle and bone issues, you may get a frozen shoulder by simply leaning on it to read in bed.
Medical science frozen shoulder solutions are basically the following for this irksome ailment:
(1) Steroid injections.
(2) Knock you out with anaesthesia, then forcibly manually move your arm to break up the scar tissue that keeps it in a rigid, painful, easily inflammed "frozen" state -- a procedure so astronomically painful, you would lose consciousness if they did while you were awake and alert.
(3) Physical therapy exercises that, while going up to the pain threshhold, averts from "going into" the pain zone in a brutal or damaging manner, but are still not pleasant to engage in.
Alternative medicine offers one more suggestion:
(4) Diet consisting of fruit, vegetables, and herbs.
Frozen shoulder can be helped to a large degree, even completely healed, by using the last two methodologies: fluid movement and strenghthening exercises and diet.
You can't ignore frozen shoulder for long. It just gets worse and worse, more painful and limiting. It can actually be a cause for anxiety and despair, too.

But wait. Who said we had to give up in defeat and depression? Let's take a look at some potential solutions that can help relieve the suffering, repair the damage, and stop the deterioration of frozen shoulder syndrome.
These videos are presented for your consideration. Later, we'll look at diet and herbs for relieving frozen shoulder syndrome and related ailments.

American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons "Frozen Shoulder"
A doctor can diagnose frozen shoulder based on the patient's symptoms and a physical examination.
X-rays or MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) studies are sometimes used to rule out other causes of shoulder stiffness and pain, such as a rotator cuff tear.
Frozen shoulder will generally get better on its own. However, this takes some time, occasionally up to two to three years. Treatment is aimed at pain control and restoring motion.
