My left shoulder was painful for an unknown reason, for about a month. There was no apparent injury – - I woke up one morning and it hurt. I guessed I slept on it wrong.

I’ve used anti-inflamatory drugs, which give some pain relief.
But now, my shoulder is frozen. I cannot reach high enough to brush my hair.

This is the second time I’ve had frozen shoulder. Previously, it was my right shoulder, caused by overuse. I had 6 weeks of physical therapy, meds, and home exercising, and my right shoulder now is virtually normal, with the exception of being somewhat weak.

Is there a way to treat this at home? I am aware of the exercises, the need for anti-inflamatories and heat. I would really like to avoid the medical bills and the expense of physical therapy.

What do you think?
Thanks ahead of time.
