I was in an accident where I tore my rotator cuff and fractured my back. The fracture has healed and I had the rotator cuff repaired, however, I developed adhesive capsulitis from the shoulder surgery. Now I have pain in my thoracic back that becomes very painful when I use my arms to do ordinary tasks that can cause me to miss work 5 or so days a month and loss night of sleep. Because nothing major shows up on an MRI I am told that there is nothing I can do to improve my problem except to take pain medications. Adhesive capculitis is a painful debilitating condition that doesn’t show up on an MRI and what I am finding out is that most Doctors are at a loss if the MRI report doesn’t show anything. The shoulder surgeon is aware of the adhesive capsulitis however he has told me that I have a chronic condition for which there is noting I can do except exercise which makes my condition worse. Does anyone have any ideas?
