Frozen Shoulder


Frozen shoulder is also known as adhesive capsulitis. It is most common in middle age, and in women more than men.

The condition is characterised by inflammation and scar tissue forming in and around the shoulder. This is unusual and an atypical response to a small trauma. It results in pain from the inflammation and stiffness from the scar tissue.
