Frozen Shoulder, known in the medical community as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition that leads to a painful loss of range of motion in the shoulder joint. It causes persistent shoulder pain, inflammation and stiffness in the connective tissue of the shoulder.
Frozen shoulder causes the capsule surrounding the shoulder joint to contract and form scar tissue, which causes a painful restriction in range of motion. The condition is known to gradually worsen over time. These persistent symptoms can make daily tasks extremely painful and challenging.

If any of these symptoms sound familiar, it’s time to talk with a medical professional:
Shoulder pain and abnormal motion in the joint may develop gradually or come on suddenly. Even shoulder injuries that start off being quite subtle can develop into major issues when left untreated
Many people over 40 experiencing shoulder pain may believe they have a rotator cuff issue, or the start of arthritis. Their misconception leads them to put off getting a diagnosis to avoid surgery or long-term physical therapy. In reality, many people are unknowingly suffering from a condition called frozen shoulder.
Delaying a proper diagnosis and treatment can lead to lifelong, debilitating issues.
Surgery and long-term physical therapy are not always required, depending on a proper diagnosis.
