Frozen Shoulder

Frozen Shoulder, also known as Adhesive Capsulitis, is a condition that causes complete or partial restriction of motion and severe pain in the shoulder joint. In a Frozen Shoulder, the normally flexible and very elastic lining of the shoulder joint, known as the 'capsule', which allows for the normal range of motion in the shoulder, loses its elasticity, thickens and contracts. The capsule along with its ligaments becomes inflamed, swollen and very painful, restricting mobility.

Causes or Possible Risk Factors

  • Most people with frozen shoulder have suffered from immobility as a result of a recent injury or fracture
  • Shoulder surgery
  • Cervical disc disease of the neck
  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol and/or heart disease
  • Open heart surgery
  • Thyroid problems


  • Dull or aching pain
  • Stiffness
  • Decreased motion of the shoulder
  • Pain typically worsens at night and when trying to sleep on the affected shoulder
