About Frozen Shoulder
Frozen shoulder – medically referred to as adhesive capsulitis – is a condition that causes pain and restricted movement in the shoulder. This disorder results when the shoulder joint capsule, which surrounds the shoulder joint and rotator cuff, becomes inflamed. While some patients experience limited range of motion, others are unable to move their shoulder entirely.
We design fully customized physical therapy programs to loosen muscles and improve range of motion.
There are two categories of frozen shoulder. Primary adhesive capsulitis occurs when there is no clear cause of stiffness or pain. This form may be a result of an autoimmune disorder or diabetes. Secondary adhesive capsulitis is more clearly the result of physical trauma. Frozen shoulder usually diminishes over time, however, it can take one to three years for symptoms to fade without appropriate treatment.
