What Is Frozen Shoulder?
Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition where there is a restriction in the shoulder joints. Frozen shoulder creates intense contraction of the capsule that surrounds and supports the shoulder girdle. Muscles around the shoulder joints are inflamed and tender, restricting your movements and causing pain in the shoulder.
This condition typically happens to only one shoulder although one could have the condition on both shoulders. People with frozen shoulders will have difficulty with their normal daily activities such as combing their hair, putting on their shirts and scratching their backs.
