Frozen Shoulder

A ‘frozen shoulder’ usually develops over a period of time starting with mild shoulder pain. This pain slowly, or rapidly, increases in severity so that it can eventually become difficult to move your arm without strong shoulder or upper arm pain. It can start as a problem of the ‘soft tissue’ or it may result from underlying arthritis in the shoulder.

We use a combination of exercise, manual therapy, and pulsed radiofrequency techniques to help clear out your pain and return your range of motion. 

Fees & Insurance


Will you file a claim with my insurance company or is that my responsibility?

Yes. If we are under contract with your insurance company, we will collect the co-payment at the time of your visit and submit the claim for you. 


What are the rates if you are out of network with my insurance plan?

If we do not currently participate in your health insurance plan and you have out of network
benefits we will file a claim directly with your insurance company.  Please call the office to
find out what your ‘co-pay’ would be.


We never perform any service without discussing it, and its cost with you beforehand, and receiving your approval. We are very respectful around finances, and no one ever receives a bill from “out of nowhere” from us!

Give a call to discuss your specific health concerns with Dr. Kowal and he’ll be able to clarify what finances, evaluative services and/or care would look like for you personally.
