Q: What is a frozen shoulder?

A: Adhesive capsulitis is the technical term for “frozen shoulder”. The shoulder joint is supported by ligaments which connect the shoulder bones together and keep them properly aligned when in motion. Normally, the ligaments are flexible enough to permit full movement of the shoulder. When adhesive capsulitis occurs, the ligaments develop an inflammatory process causing them to be infiltrated with scar tissue which forms very restricting adhesions. This “freezing” of the joint severely decreases the shoulder’s normal range of motion and can cause a considerable amount of pain when motion is attempted.
