Since you will only be in the physical therapy clinic for 2-3 hours per week for Frozen Shoulder or Adhesive Capsulitis, your therapist will give you exercises to complete at home (HEP—Home Exercise Program) once they know what you tolerate in your PT sessions. This will allow you to take some of your recovery into your own hands and regain your shoulder strength and range of motion more quickly. Some of the exercises that you may see on your HEP include therapeutic stretching, assisted range of motion exercises (such as using a cane, doorway or broomstick to assist shoulder mobility), active movement of the shoulder, and gentle strengthening. A home exercise program will help you know the safe limits for stretching and allow you to Feel Better Faster.
