There are many causes of frozen shoulder

Frozen shoulder usually occurs when the shoulder joint becomes inflamed, leading to progressive tissue tightness, stiffness and pain. Often times, frozen shoulder has no clear cause and typically affects people over 40 who have an underlying injury or medical condition like diabetes. Some experts believe that it is caused by a combination of inflammation from soft tissue tears, lack of general activity in the shoulder joint or sleeping on the same side for an extended period of time. Whatever the cause may be, if you experience any signs of frozen shoulder it’s important to seek assistance from a regulated health professional such as a chiropractor or physiotherapist as soon as possible.

What is frozen shoulder?

Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is an incredibly common musculoskeletal disorder that affects the shoulder joints. This condition is characterized by extreme pain and an inability to move the shoulder joint – usually accompanied by stiffness and swelling. It generally comes on after injury or prolonged immobility, though it can occur for other reasons too.

What are the symptoms of frozen shoulder?

Symptoms of frozen shoulder typically develop gradually and can include pain in the affected area along with limited range of motion and stiffness throughout the joint. This pain may be dull or aching initially and can become more severe over time if not properly treated. Individuals with frozen shoulder will often complain of difficulty reaching behind their back or lifting their arms above their head due to intense pain in the shoulder joint. Additionally, when turning in bed or attempting to adjust clothing, people with frozen shoulder may experience a grinding sensation due to lack of lubrication within the joint capsule.
