Simple and Effective Stretch Exercise for Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis) / Dr Mandell

Many shoulder conditions lead to frozen shoulder syndrome, also known as adhesive capsulitis. Most people with shoulder pain do not take action to increase the range of motion in their shoulder joint. When the shoulder is left alone the shoulder pathology and pain usually continues to worsen.

Since then I have gone to Chiropractic college and become a Diplomate of the International College of Applied Kinesiology and a Diplomate in Clinical Nutrition. [Check Details Here==>**** ]. As a result, I have come to some important conclusions about how the body works. Hip flexibility, mobility and strength are one of the most important things you can do to keep your overall body healthy. The way we moved thousands of years ago is our natural state, which requires flexible and mobile hips. “Dr Alan Jenks DC DIBAK DABCN”*

    Thank you very much for this simple exercise. It definitely helps me, I appreciate it!

  • Rose Rose

    Great exercise. But if you have two frozen shoulders there is no way to do this. 🙁

  • Jonathan Lee

    I don’t want to seem like a troll, but very few people with truly frozen shoulders are going to be able to attain a starting position at 90 degrees, as demonstrated. I couldn’t do that even with pressure from the good hand/arm. If you have minor shoulder issues, I’m sure this would help a lot. If you are like most people with a frozen shoulder, I just don’t see the applicability.

      I’m not that bad jet, I’m going to try it and see what happens.

    • Jonathan Lee

      Thanks. Can’t get a broomstick behind my neck on the weak side , but I’ll try it in front.

    • motivationaldoc

      Unfortunately lots of medical failures. Hope this will help you.

      Thank you for responding. I’ve done the pendulum swings for years. Not sure what stair stepping exercises are. In all fairness, I should note that I developed these symptoms post surgery back in 2004. I’ve been to two different doctors, both surgeons, who recommended replacement, which I am hesitant to do, because of the high rate of failure, my relatively young age for the procedure (about the only time 55 would be considered young, I suppose) and the fact that it would end my ability actually lift weights, limited though it is. Ironically, I had 98% ROM before the surgery, but some instability and pain due to a very detached labrum. Should have definitely settled for that, as opposed to this. Again, thanks for responding.

  • Sher Lizz

    I have 2 frozen shoulders. Do you have an exercise for that?

  • Family and Friends sharing

    This is very painful. I don’t feel the stretch in the back of the shoulder, instead I feel the “frozen shoulder pain” in the front. Any suggestions?

  • senthil visagan

    very painful even before I could clasping the bad arm. What to do?

  • Dora Lee

  • Todd Olson

    I can’t even get my good arm to wrap around the bad one let alone position the hand where it need to be, trying to do this kills my shoulder, one thing yer right about is that while I’m trying to do this, it’s pulling horribly on the back of my shoulder. And then I call it good. Got any more that you don’t have to be double jointed to do.

  • Limit-less JMFITNESS

    Didn’t help a bit. Pecs and anterior Delts won’t allow for that reach around with the other arm

  • Dra Fitt

    its impossible i cant do it

  • Matthew Burnett

    Massage your mussels first if you can’t reach for a good 5 minutes. I tried the stretch and n know it’s going to help out. Thanks ? a lot for the video.
