Have you lost the range of motion in your shoulder?
This is called a frozen shoulder, also referred to as adhesive capsulitis. The bones, ligaments and tendons that make up your shoulder joint are sheathed in a capsule of connective tissue. You are feeling the inflammation, scarring, thickening, and shrinkage of the capsule that surrounds the normal shoulder joint many times (but not always) with pain. This can be the result of tendinitis, bursitis, and rotator cuff injury, which occurs more frequently in patients with diabetes, chronic inflammatory arthritis of the shoulder or after chest or breast surgery. The condition develops over time, typically 12-18 months, most often over the age of 40 and women are more prone to it. Frozen shoulder can usually be diagnosed from signs and symptoms alone. There may have been a clear history of events that could strain or injure the shoulder joint. Imaging test can rule out other problems and isolate your issue.
