How does the frozen shoulder treatment fix a torn rotator cuff?


Answer by  MathWiz (1408)

You might be confusing the problem of a frozen shoulder with a torn rotator cuff. The treatment for the two often include physical therapy and surgery if necessary. One shouldn't use the treatment for a frozen shoulder to fix a torn rotator cuff though. Additionally, some frozen shoulder treatment is often for pain management and not healing.

Freezing it can numb the pain away, but you should also be using some heat after or before freezing it to loosen it up first.

Frozen shoulder is not a treatment, it is a condition "adhesive capsulitis" usually caused by not using the shoulder due to pain. Rotator cuff is treated by rest and meds.
