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.

Your shoulder is made up of three bones that form a ball-and-socket joint. They are your upper arm

(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.

With frozen shoulder, the capsule becomes so thick and tight that it’s hard to move. Bands of scar

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

limit motion even more.

Frozen shoulder is generally divided into 3 phases


2-Freezing – Diifficulty in elevating the arm or taking hand behind the back.

3- Thawing- Final phases the shoulder loosens up,the movement are restored.


The main symptoms of a frozen shoulder are pain and stiffness that make it difficult or impossible to

move it.

If you have frozen shoulder, you’ll likely feel a dull or achy pain in one shoulder. You might also feel

the pain in the shoulder muscles that wrap around the top of your arm. You might feel the same

sensation in your upper arm. Your pain could get worse at night, which can make it hard to sleep.

A. You develop a pain (sometimes severe) in your shoulder any time you move it.

Frozen shoulder happens more often in women than men, and you’re more likely to get it if you’re

between the ages of 40 and 60. Your risk might also go up if you’re in the process of recovering from

a medical condition like a stroke, or surgery like a mastectomy that keeps you from moving your


Certain medical conditions can increase your risk too. You may also be more likely to get frozen

shoulder if you have diabetes. About 10% to 20% of people with diabetes get frozen shoulder. Other

medical problems like heart disease, thyroid disease, or Parkinson’s disease are linked to frozen

shoulder, too.
