WHAT IS FROZEN SHOULDER?
Frozen shoulder, or adhesive capsulitis, is a condition that causes severe, painful restriction of motion in the shoulder joint. Frozen shoulder causes the capsule surrounding the shoulder joint to contract and form scar tissue which prevents the shoulder bone from being able to move in the socket. The shoulder literally seems to be “frozen” which is why it is called frozen shoulder. When a patient develops frozen shoulder, the capsule surrounding the joint contracts. The patient’s body forms bands of scar tissue called adhesions. In addition, the soft sacs which cushion the joint called bursas may also stick together causing loss of ability to move the shoulder. The contraction of the capsule and the formation of the adhesions cause the frozen shoulder to become stiff and cause movement to become extremely painful.
•Shoulder pain; usually a dull, aching pain.
•Pain when trying to sleep on the affected shoulder
•Limited movement of the shoulder with severe pain if it is moved beyond a certain range.
•Difficulty with activities such as brushing teeth/hair or putting on shirts/bras.
The human shoulder is extremely specialized and the most complicated joint of the body. The shoulder joint normally allows for a larger range motion than any other joint in the body. Frozen Shoulder is a condition that causes severe painful restriction of motion in the shoulder joint. Loss of ability to move the shoulder may occur when bands of scar tissue, called adhesions, form. In addition, the soft sacs which cushion the joint, called bursas, may stick together.
