Frozen shoulder is the common name for adhesive capsulitis, occurs when ligaments around the shoulder joint swell and become stiff that limits your range of motion. The inflammation of this tissue can make normal healing hard and result in your shoulder being so stiff that everyday activities can be troublesome. It is very painful for sufferers, which is normally followed by increasing stiffness after around nine months. Symptoms can get worse over time and then resolve, usually within one to three years.
