Im hoping mine will get better on its own. Hurt it three months ago .Couldnt lift arm for a good while. Hurt ,couldnt sleep on that side, feels a little better. Medical costs are crazy only going if I have to. Im 52 maybee its getting to age where stuff doesnt heal fast anymore. Are you a younger guy with this problem? If so may as well get it fixed right.
About a year ago I had shoulder issues, I'm 62 now, never really ahd any previous injury related causes. I simply lost range of motion problems and could hardly raise my arm or roll over on that shoulder while sleeping without lots of pain.
I went to a specialist, (the Panthers ortho man), who did x-ray and mri said I had "frozen shoulder" and suggested physical therapy. After several sessions with little progress, doctor said no pain no gain, he injected with cortisone and said continue therapy. Near the end of therapy, (insurance running out), I had gained some range of motion but still not happy, the doctor said there is a couple options, anestisize you and do a full manipulation, surgery where I take it apart clean it out and put it back together, or keep exercising it and your body will likely heal itself in time.
1) Full manipulation, he said would be painful, might work, but would require more physical therapy
2) Surgery, I gaurantee you will have full range of motion but will be more painful and
require 3 to 6 months of physical therapy
3) Continue exercise, (the option I choose), seems to have worked out OK as I now have about 90% range of motion and no pain
