Frozen Shoulder: Stiffness and Pain of the Shoulder Joint

fdf    ca

A frozen shoulder is a condition that causes pain and limited motion of the shoulder joint. Finding the cause of a frozen shoulder can be difficult.

Frozen shoulder, also called adhesive capsulitis, can often be caused by unknown reasons but certain individuals appear to have a higher chance of developing the condition. Frozen shoulder causes the capsule surrounding the shoulder joint to contract and develop scar tissue.

The causes for this condition are not commonly associated with injury, however, common factors in many people affected by the condition include: age and gender, endocrine disorders, shoulder trauma or surgery, and other systemic conditions.
