Re: Frozen Shoulder

This probably corresponds to a named exercise on John's list, but I learned it as Pendulum Exercise, fdone first empty hand and then holding a can of food in the hand. Any PT should be able to show it to you and empty-handed it is often considered the first, gentlest range of motion for a postop or a frozen shoulder. And I agree that assisted or oh heck what is it called? proprioceptive or neurosomething facilitated stretching and/or myofascial release by a qualified person would be worth looking at.
