Our Approach to Treating

Frozen Shoulder in Adults

Orthopedists at NYU Langone Orthopedic Center are experts in diagnosing frozen shoulder, in which inflammation in the ligaments of the shoulder causes stiffness, pain, and decreased range of motion. When symptoms of frozen shoulder interfere with your ability to perform everyday tasks, our specialists can evaluate, diagnose, and treat the condition to help improve your quality of life.

Our orthopedists work with rehabilitation experts called physiatrists and physical therapists at NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation to help reduce pain and improve range of motion.

Treatment for Frozen Shoulder in Adults

Treatment may include the use of anti-inflammatory pain medications, steroid injections, and physical therapy.
