Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)…

Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)…


Frozen shoulder is the common name for Adhesive Capsulitis, a shoulder condition that limits your range of motion. When the tissues in your shoulder joint become thicker and tighter, scar tissue develops over time. As a result, your shoulder joint does not have enough space to rotate properly.


Frozen shoulder without any known cause starts with a pain.  Risk factors include:

  • Cervical disk disease of the neck
  • Diabetes
  • Shoulder injury
  • Shoulder surgery
  • Open heart Surgery
  • Thyroid problems

Early symptoms of frozen shoulder:

  •  A feeling of pain and tightness in the shoulder area.
  • A feeling of tightness especially when putting the arm up and back, as you would do it you were throwing a ball overarm.
  • Pain on the back of the wrist.
  • As time goes on, the symptoms will worsen although the pain may be reduced

This pain prevents you from moving your arm. Lack of movement leads to stiffness  and then even less motion. Over time, you become unable to do movements such as reaching over your head or behind you.


The best way to prevent frozen shoulder is to contact your health care provider if you develop shoulder pain that limits your range of motion for an extended period. Early treatment and helps prevent stiffness.

People who have diabetes will be less likely to get frozen shoulder if they keep their condition under control.
