Frozen shoulder (FS) is a commonly seen condition in clinical practice. This case report shows evidence of the effectiveness of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for FS where physical therapy (PT) exercises were not utilised as they aggravated the patient’s pain. Indicators measured in the study included involved joint pain, range of motion and quality of life. Results at baseline and six week follow-up were reported in a MYMOP form. In this case, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine were successful in maintaining positive results and improving movement and function of the shoulder joint in a patient with FS.
