Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder is a problem that is also known as adhesive capsulitis and it has affected more than 2% of the population. The major sign is a pain in the joint and decreased mobility. This problem can affect both children and adults, but it mainly affects people whose age ranges from 40 to 70 years mostly women.

Ligaments, tendons and muscles work together to offer support and motion that enables us to move our hands in different positions in order to complete tasks. The specific causes of frozen shoulder are not yet known but it begins with an initial pain and a decrease in movement.

The symptoms of frozen shoulder take sometime before they are noticeable. Patients usually experiences pain that keep on increasing with time. As the chemical changes take place in the shoulder joint, adhesions form and begin to restrict mobility. The lubricating capsule in the shoulder thickens and provides less lubrication. The moment the sufferer notices an issue in lack of mobility, the disorder has already started and it requires treatment.

Causes of Frozen shoulder

Myocardial infarction

Upper torso surgery such as the arm and shoulder surgery. Patients who have undergone shoulder surgery such as repair to the labrum in the shoulder are likely to experience frozen shoulder.

Failure to use the shoulder for long

This happens when the shoulder joint is not used and remains in the same position for a long period of time such as when the patient is unable to use their arm and mobility is decreased. When the initial pain is not catered for, the inflammatory nature of the disorder progresses and adhesions form in the joint restricting movement and increasing the level of pain.
