Understand the reason, symptoms, and treatment required for people suffering from frozen shoulders.
Nowadays people of all age groups undergo joint pain issues. Joint pain is a common complaint, and Frozen shoulder is a common cause of joint pain. It is a condition of the shoulder that limits the range of motion. When the tissues in your shoulder joint become thicker and tighter, scar tissue develops over time. As a result, your shoulder joint doesn’t have enough space to rotate properly.
Reason For Frozen Shoulder
- When a person tries to lift heavy objects, the impact is severe on the shoulder.
- Any past injury or inflammation can cause frozen shoulders.
- If you have a hormonal imbalance, diabetes, or a weakened immune system, you may be prone to joint inflammation.
- Walking rashly could cause a frozen shoulder.
- Shoulder blade is attached to our chest with the help of muscles and tendons which is encased in a capsule of connective tissue. Frozen shoulder occurs when this capsule thickens and tightens around the shoulder joint, restricting its movement.
- Frozen shoulders occur in people with diabetes.
- Reduces mobility of arms.
- Creates stiffness in arms.
Stages Of Frozen Shoulder
Stage 1: In the “freezing” stage, you slowly have more and more pain. As the pain increases, the shoulder loses the range of motion. Freezing typically lasts from 6 weeks to 9 months.
Stage 2: Painful symptoms may actually improve during this stage, but the stiffness remains. In these 4 to 6 months of the stage, daily activities will be very difficult.
Stage 3: Shoulder motion slowly improves during the “thawing” stage. You will then have a complete return to normal which typically takes from 6 months to 2 years.
