What Is a Frozen Shoulder?
Frozen shoulder is a condition that affects your shoulder joint. It usually involves pain and stiffness that develops
gradually, gets worse and then finally goes away. This can take anywhere from a year to 3 years.

(humerus), shoulder blade (scapula), and collarbone (clavicle). There’s also tissue surrounding your
shoulder joint that holds everything together. This is called the shoulder capsule.

tissue form and there’s less of a liquid called synovial fluid to keep the joint lubricated. These things
