Shoulder pain is an extremely common complaint, and there are many common causes of this problem. It is important to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your symptoms so that appropriate treatment can be directed at the cause.
This is a disorder in which the capsule (membrane) surrounding the shoulder joint becomes inflamed and stiff and severely affects the movement of the shoulder, hence the term “frozen”.
The exact cause is unknown and the condition can last from a few months up to three years or more.
The shoulder may or may not be painful, but the most debilitating thing is the lack of movement, which can become extremely severe.
