Frozen shoulder

Medically referred to as "adhesive capsulitis", is a disorder in which the shoulder capsule, the tissue surrounding the shoulder joint of the shoulder, becomes inflamed and stiff, greatly restricting motion and causing chronic pain.
Adhesive capsulitis is a painful and disabling condition for which an exact cause is unknown, however, there are strong links with trauma, injury and diabetes. The condition can last from five months to three years, sometimes longer due to the adhesions and scar tissue within the joint there is also a lack of fluid in the joint, further restricting movement and preventing recovery.
