Frozen Shoulder

What is Frozen shoulder?

Frozen shoulder, also called “adhesive capsulitis”, refers to the pain, stiffness, and limited range of movement in the shoulder. Frozen shoulder develops when the strong connective tissue surrounding the shoulder joint (known as the shoulder joint capsule) thickens, stiffens, and becomes inflamed. The condition is known as a “frozen” shoulder because the more discomfort you feel, the less inclined to utilize your shoulder. The shoulder capsule thickens and tightens as a result of lack of use, making the shoulder even more difficult to move — it becomes “frozen” in its position.
Frozen shoulder symptoms include:
  • Shoulder pain
  • Limited movement resulting in stiffness
  • Inability to do daily duties such as dressing or getting dressed
  • Several conditions can cause a frozen shoulder, including:
  • Injury
  • pain
  • surgery
  • diabetes or
  • stroke
  • Illnesses that prevent you from using your shoulders to their full range of motion
  • Frozen shoulders are more common in postmenopausal women and men between the ages of forty and seventy. Some other risk factors of frozen shoulder include:
  • Women and men over the age of forty
  • Persons with prolonged shoulder immobility owing to rotator cuff damage, broken arm, or surgical recovery
  • Diabetes
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Parkinson’s disease
