Frozen Shoulder - Causes, Symptoms and Frozen Shoulder Pain Relief:

What is frozen shoulder... ?

Frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis is a painful condition in which the shoulder loses its range of movements. This condition is referred to as "frozen shoulder" because it becomes very difficult for a person to move his shoulder. The shoulder is not actually frozen, it is just stiff. It may follow an injury to the shoulder, but may also arise gradually without warning or injury.

Adhesive capsulitis causes scar tissue to form in the shoulder region. This may occur as a result of injury. Other conditions like tendonitis (inflammation or irritation of a tendon) and bursitis (inflammation or irritation of a bursa). If the shoulder has been immobilized for a long period of time, adhesive capsulitis could develop as a result.

The condition could also develop as a result of an autoimmune reaction. The body thinks it is under attack during an autoimmune reaction and will start to attack parts of itself causing an inflammatory reaction in the tissues. However, in most cases, the cause is unknown.
