Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder is a condition in which joint motion becomes restricted because of inflammatory thickening of the capsule and cause shoulder stiffness. It is also known as adhesive capsulitis and characterized by pain and loss of motion in the shoulder, causes the capsule surrounding the shoulder joint to contract and form scar tissue. Your risk of developing frozen shoulder increases if you\'ve recently had to have your arm in a sling for several weeks, or if you have had surgery in which your arm was immobilized in a specific position for a prolonged period. The most commonly affected people are between the ages of 40 to 60 years of age, women more often than men with no clear predisposition based on sex, arm dominance, or occupation.
