Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)

Frozen shoulder is when your shoulder becomes painful and loses motion because of inflammation. The capsule of the shoulder joint contains ligaments that hold the shoulder bones together. When this capsule becomes inflamed, the shoulder bones are unable to move freely in the joint, causing a decreased range of motion of the shoulder, pain, and stiffness. Goals of treatment are to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.
