Christiane… I have heard you mention “frozen shoulder” and knew you had written a blog about it at one time. This is such a bummer!! I have been virtually pain free with the exception of some minor stiffness in a Tband and hip flexor muscle, but a couple of weeks ago my entire body seemed to go into inflammation – especially my trunk. It’s hard to get out of bed in am and really takes a while for my body to get moving. I am seeing a chiropractor, exercise at a wellness center 5 days/week, eat very little sugar, watch my grain intake and use supplements. I also meditate some in am, listen to you and Hay House radio, have your books and am currently reading “Making Life Easy.” This is such a shock, although I think some of the shoulder stuff began when my husband started to sleep in the other bedroom, and when he did sleep in our bed, I would lay there so quietly so as not to disturb him.. bingo!!! Also, there are some money issues. We do have separate check books, but I feel I am covering too many of the expenses. This is getting way too long. I know the marriage is a concern for me. I am using some of Tosha’s “Change me Prayers” to give the partnership to our Divine Creator and praying for the space between us. I am also going to get Judy O.’s book she mentioned on your radio show this week with regard to empaths, because she mention something about a “shield” Wednesday. I have realized I am missing my sense of community I need, when she spoke about belonging to a 12 step program. I do also and have been going to AA for many years and so went to a meeting yesterday am. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I have thanked my Divine Creator for all the gifts of who you are. Am sure part of it is you are willing to share them and to do the work. Once when you were on Oprah and you were talking about writing down your dreams, she commented how you are really doing the work. I thought of that yesterday when I read your story about writing the love letter to your husband and sharing it with him… wow – talk about vulnerability… From my heart to yours… THANK YOU!!!
Transdermal patches (adhesive patches placed on the skin) may also be used to deliver a steady dose through the skin and into the bloodstream. Testosterone-containing creams and gels that are applied daily to the skin are also available, but absorption is inefficient (roughly 10%, varying between individuals) and these treatments tend to be more expensive. Individuals who are especially physically active and/or bathe often may not be good candidates, since the medication can be washed off and may take up to six hours to be fully absorbed. There is also the risk that an intimate partner or child may come in contact with the application site and inadvertently dose himself or herself; children and women are highly sensitive to testosterone and can suffer unintended masculinization and health effects, even from small doses. Injection is the most common method used by individuals administering AAS for non-medical purposes. 
For rotator cuff disease, subacromial steroid injection was demonstrated to have a small benefit over placebo in some trials however no benefit of subacromial steroid injection over NSAID was demonstrated based upon the pooled results of three trials.
For adhesive capsulitis, two trials suggested a possible early benefit of intra-articular steroid injection over placebo but there was insufficient data for pooling of any of the trials. One trial suggested short-term benefit of intra-articular corticosteroid injection over physiotherapy in the short-term (success at seven weeks RR = (, ).
