Frozen Shoulder

About Frozen Shoulder

This acute condition affects 2-3% of the population and involves the shoulder joint. It can be termed in many ways, but most commonly called adhesive capsulitis. The sign of a frozen shoulder is pain on the shoulder joint and gradually decreasing mobility. As there is no accurate timeframe for treatment, it is highly advised to seek medical help.

Frozen shoulder affects mostly women, and people ranging from 40-60 years old, although there are some instances where patients experience it in their childhood and early adulthood.

Frozen Shoulder symptoms

Symptoms of frozen shoulder show as a dull ache in one shoulder. It can spread down to the upper arm and the base of the neck as well.

At night, it worsens, which causes the patient to suffer from lack of sleep and be more prone to stress.

As months go by, the pain lessens, but stiffness and immobility do not alleviate.

In fact, it can be so severe that daily activities are almost impossible to achieve.
