Frozen shoulder, sometimes mistaken for arthritis, is a common condition that can be extraordinarily painful, limiting quality-of-life. Here is some basic information on the condition.
What is frozen shoulder?
Many of us suffer from adhesive capsulitis, commonly known as frozen shoulder. The articular shoulder capsule becomes inflamed, scar tissue is generated, and the shoulder’s range of motion becomes progressively limited. It can occur to both shoulders at once but is isolated to one shoulder in about 80% of patients.
