Frozen Shoulder is a condition that causes pain and limited motion of the shoulder joint. Finding the cause can be difficult.
Frozen shoulder, also called adhesive capsulitis, is a condition that causes restriction of motion and pain in the shoulder joint. The cause is often unknown, but there are certain people who seem to have a higher likelihood of developing this condition. It causes the capsule surrounding the shoulder joint to contract and form scar tissue.
The causes for this condition are not commonly associated with injury, however, common factors in many people affected by the condition include: age and gender, endocrine disorders, shoulder trauma or surgery, and other conditions.
Most people unfamiliar with this condition are surprised by the amount of pain it can cause and the duration symptoms can persist. However, there is good news, as appropriate treatment can be effective at controlling pain and accelerating the recovery.
Frozen shoulder, medically referred to as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition that causes restricted or limited mobility and pain in the shoulder joint. This condition causes the shoulder joint to become stiff and the capsule around the shoulder contracts.
