What is a Frozen Shoulder?

The technical name for a frozen shoulder is adhesive capsulitis. Symptoms typically include stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint which leads to restricted movement.

How does a frozen shoulder feel?

Pain is intense but short lived when the shoulder is moved in a particular way. Patients will often have difficulty doing simple tasks such as getting dressed or just lifting their arms up.

The longer it is left without treatment the more restricted the movement.
