A frozen shoulder is medically known as adhesive capsulitis. The inability to move the shoulder in any direction is called frozen shoulder. The patient feels chronic pain in the shoulder. The stiffness and inflammation to the connective tissues around the glenohumeral joint of the shoulder (shoulder capsule) causes frozen shoulder.
Normally the course of frozen shoulder is described in three stages. The first stage witness slow onset of pain which worsened over time and the shoulder loses motion. It is also called the 'freezing' or 'painful' stage. In the second stage there is recovery in pain however the stiffness continues. It is known as 'frozen' or 'adhesive' stage. The third stage, which is known as 'thawing' or 'recovery' stage is marked with full recovery from pain and stiffness. The duration of each stage varies with individual patient.
1. The inability to move the shoulder in all directions and continuous pain in the shoulder is the major symptom of frozen shoulder. Even a light activity which requires slight movement of shoulder becomes impossible. Terrific pain and cramp is caused with certain movement of shoulder, which may last ranging from few seconds to several minutes.
2. In case of injury to single tendons of the shoulder, though the motion of shoulder is restricted it is not in all directions and doctor is normally able to move the shoulder more than the patient can do on his own. However in case of frozen shoulder even doctor is not able to move the shoulder when the patient relaxes.
3. The pain in the shoulder increases with downfall in temperature. Hence patient feels more pain in night.
4. The recovery from restriction of movement of shoulder and pain is very slow in case of frozen shoulder.
Frozen shoulder is caused by stiffness and inflammation of capsule around the shoulder joint (shoulder capsule). Any injury or trauma to the shoulder including rotator cluff, bursitis and tendinitis can cause frozen shoulder.
People suffering to chronic diseases like arthritis of the shoulder, diabetes or people who have undergone chest or breast surgery are more vulnerable o the disorder of frozen shoulder. Taking rest for long time resulting in non movement of shoulder for long time can make people more susceptible to develop frozen shoulder.
The frozen shoulder is diagnosed when the range of motion with active participation of muscle (i.e. motion attempted by the patient on his own) is almost same to the passive range of motion (i.e. motion attempted by the doctor with patient relaxes). The treatment depends on the underlying causes and sometimes may need surgery also.
