Frozen shoulder is a common condition in which the shoulder stiffens, reducing its mobility. It commonly affects people aged between 40 and 60 years, and it is more likely in women than in men. It is estimated to affect about 3 percent of people. It can affect one or both shoulders.
A person with a frozen shoulder will have a persistently painful and stiff shoulder joint.
Symptoms are usually classified into three stages, as they worsen gradually and may take a longer period to resolve as long as 2 to 3 year period.
The shoulder comprises three bones: The shoulder blade, the collarbone, and the upper arm bone.
Frozen shoulder is thought to happen when scar tissue forms in the shoulder. This causes the shoulder joint's capsule to thicken and tighten, leaving less room for movement. Movement may become stiff and painful.
