Management of Adhesive Capsulitis

Adhesive Capsulitis, what is it?

Frozen shoulder is stiffness, pain, and limited range of movement in your shoulder. It can happen after an injury to your shoulder or from overuse. Individuals with diabetes are more likely to get frozen shoulder at some stage in their life. The tissues around the joint stiffen, scar tissue causes restriction in movement, and the shoulder movement becomes difficult and painful. The condition comes on slowly over time and improves slowly over the course of a 12 to 24 months.
