What is frozen shoulder?

Adhesive capsulitis, another name for frozen shoulder, is a painful and incapacitating condition in which the shoulder capsule (the tissue that surrounds the shoulder joint) stiffens up and inflames, severely limiting movement and producing excruciating pain. Typically, signs and symptoms appear gradually, get worse over time, and then go away, generally in a year or two.

If you're recuperating from an injury, your risk of acquiring frozen shoulder increases if you are reecovering from  a medical disease or treatment that limits the range of motion in your arm, such as a  stroke, recent surgery or an injury. Those who have rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes are   at a greater chance of getting this.
