    hi my gp diagnosed me with frozen shoulder. I’m seeing a physio therapist and I also had a cortisone injection about 7 was ago. I recently been hearing a snapping sound it doesn’t hurt. The physio I have is pushing hard down on the shoulder joint to try break up adhesions is that noise the adhesive breaking off or is it just the joint moving.

    Hi Tracy and welcome to Healthypages,

    To be honest, you would be best asking the physio as they are the one currently treating you. They should be able to advise you of any concerns you have regarding their treatement.

    Hi thanks for reply I was just wondering if anyone else out there who had or has the same problem had this feeling .The physio isn’t sure it could be a number of things because the arm can’t move properly anyway thanks

    Can't work out the time line from your original post - was the steroid jab 7 years/weeks or days ago? If it's been weeks, and intensive physio work hasn't mobilised the joint, it may be worth being referred to an orthopaedic consultant for more investigation.

    Hi it was bout 6 weeks ago I had steroid injection at the moment I am doing homework where someone uses there had on the shoulder joint to stretch the adhesive and using a towel around the arm to gently pull it. Because arm is still sensitive he doesn’t want to push into exercises as he feels it’s too early so I’m only allowed stretching at this stage I had X-ray on shoulder but didn’t find anything wrong so it’s definitely frozen shoulder .

    Any adhesion break down produce no sound!!!
    Sounds that you here is classical cavitation of joint (if you have no pain with cavitation then no worries)
    Adhesive capsulatis (frozen shoulder) has different types (depends on location of adhesions).
    This condition is pretty common and there are different modalities to treat it.
    Without knowing history it is impossible for me to suggest something.
    But exercises (physio) one of them.
    From my experience - bigger part of success of treatment in hands of patient (because this contribution likes to come back).

    I am sometimes too sceptical cos I see how profession becoming too much businessy....
    If physio not sure (very strange), change him!
    If arm doesn’t move properly there different reasons and therapist must be able to assess and understand what is what. One of reasons can be related to neurology. As well as many other reasons. So, not biomechanical aspect only or MSK must be considered.

    What means ‘sensitive’??????
    If you have this up to now then you can contact me and I will try my best to understand reasons and maybe propose some modalities (of course for free)

    ‘Definitely’ is very strong word and, as we all know, nothing is definitely
