Summary about Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition characterized by stiffness, pain, and limited range of motion in the shoulder joint. It develops gradually and progresses through three stages: freezing, frozen, and thawing. The exact cause of a frozen shoulder is often unknown, but it can be associated with conditions like diabetes, shoulder injury, or prolonged immobilization.

What are the Symptoms of a Frozen Shoulder?

Here are the common symptoms associated with a frozen shoulder:

  • Shoulder stiffness

  • Pain

  • Limited range of motion

  • Gradual onset

  • Shoulder weakness

  • Difficulty with daily activities

What are the Causes of a Frozen Shoulder?

Here are some potential causes of frozen shoulder:

  • Shoulder immobility

  • Inflammation

  • Age and gender

  • Shoulder trauma

  • Other medical conditions like diabetes, thyroid disorders, etc

How to Diagnose Frozen Shoulder?

The analysis of a frozen shoulder is based totally on the affected person's signs, medical records, and physical examination. The physiotherapist will determine the range of motion and mobility of the shoulder joint, in addition to performing unique exams to rule out other conditions. Imaging exams which include X-rays or MRI scans may be ordered to rule out other underlying reasons and verify the diagnosis of a frozen shoulder.

How to Treat Frozen Shoulders?

The treatment of frozen shoulder aims to reduce pain, improve shoulder mobility, and restore function. Here are some common approaches to treating frozen shoulder:

  1. Physical therapy: Gentle stretching exercises and range of motion exercises prescribed by a physical therapist can help gradually improve shoulder mobility and reduce stiffness.

  2. Pain management: Over-the-counter pain relievers or prescribed medications may be recommended to manage pain and inflammation associated with a frozen shoulder.

  3. Heat and cold therapy: Applying heat or cold packs to the affected shoulder can help alleviate pain and reduce inflammation.

  4. Steroid injections: Corticosteroid injections into the shoulder joint can provide temporary relief from pain and inflammation, facilitating the rehabilitation process.

  5. Joint distension: In some cases, sterile fluid may be injected into the joint to stretch the capsule and improve the range of motion.
