Capsulitus (frozen shoulder) diagnosis

Hi,

I've been having pain in my shoulder when training them over the last couple of months I've also notices It made a clicking noise when I moved it. I've been training my delts twice a week and training my other upper body twice a week but a couple of days later.

The pain has increased over the last couple of months, so much so, I haven't been able to do any chins the last month and very limited delt training. As there's been no improvement I decided to go see the doctor. Right away he diagnosed capsulitus or frozen shoulder as they call it. He said I've not to train my upper body for two weeks and he's prescribed a course of anti inflammitories (naproxen).

Has any body else had this problem and if so how long did it last and could I train around the problem? I think I've brought it on myself by over training the delts and should have taken notice about six months ago when the signs first started. I think when I start training my upper body again I'll hit it all in one day so as to give myself enough recovery time. thanks

    Find yourself a good sports/remedial masage therapist. They'll diagnose you problem properly and get you back training quicker. Unfortunately doctors aren't great when it comes to soft tissue injuries.

    First time I had shoulder problems I went to my doctor, he diagnosed the exact same thing as you without really doing anything.
    This was not my problem.

    I advise you go else where

    I'm thinking he may have fobbed me off, I wore a baggy t shirt in the hope that he wouldn't see I worked out and then think it was self inflicted due to training but he told me to take off my t shirt, then said do you lift weights and then told me to lay off it for 2- 3 weeks and take the tabs. I was taken calcium supplements for the last few months and had increased my calcium in the hope that it aided fat loss I'm starting to think I may have a calcium deposit in the shoulder I'm not going to stop training my upper body, pain not that bad.
