Frozen shoulder varies in severity and in it’s most extreme is medically referred to as adhesive capsulitis, which is a disorder in which the shoulder capsule, the connective tissue surrounding the glenohumeral joint of the shoulder, becomes inflamed and stiff, greatly restricting motion and causing chronic pain.
Adhesive capsulitis is a painful and disabling condition that often causes great frustration for patients and caregivers due to slow recovery.
In any level of frozen shoulder, movement of the shoulder is severely restricted. Pain can be constant, worse at night and during cold weather. Combine these factors with the accompanying restricted movement and even the smallest tasks become frustrating or even impossible. Certain movements or bumps can cause sudden onset of tremendous pain and cramping that can last several minutes.
This condition, for which an exact cause is unknown, can last from five months to three years or more and is thought in some cases to be caused by injury or trauma to the area.
