Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder is a condition of stiffness and pain in the shoulder that limits normal movement of the joint. It is also known as adhesive capsulitis.

The shoulder has two joints. The glenohumeral joint is a highly flexible ball-and-socket joint, formed by the connection of the humerus (upper arm) and the scapula (shoulder blade). The upper end of the humerus has a rounded shape that fits into a shallow concavity of the scapula called the glenoid fossa. There is a strong capsule of connective tissue that surrounds the joint, partially formed from ligaments. Contained within the capsule is synovial fluid, a nourishing and lubricating substance. If the capsule becomes too tight, the range of motion of the shoulder is restricted, causing pain and immobility.
