Short Description of Frozen Shoulder
Frozen shoulder results in a gradual loss of shoulder movement more particularly the glenohumeral joint. This consists of a ball (the humeral head) and socket (glenoid). It is one of the most mobile joints found in the human body. When it has become “frozen”, the joint has become stuck and therefore movement becomes limited.
Symptoms of Frozen Shoulder
Frozen shoulder typically develops slowly, and in three stages. Each stage can last a number of months.
- Freezing stage. Any movement of your shoulder causes pain, and your shoulder’s range of motion starts to become limited.
- Frozen stage. Pain may begin to diminish during this stage. However, your shoulder becomes stiffer, and using it becomes more difficult.
- Thawing stage. The range of motion in your shoulder begins to improve.
For some people, the pain worsens at night, sometimes disrupting sleep.
About Frozen Shoulder
Frozen shoulder also known as adhesive capsulitis results to pain and stiffness of the shoulder. Over time, the shoulder becomes very difficult to move. There is a period wherein the symptoms become worse but after that it tends to become better but full recovery of the patient may take as much as 3 years. Physical therapy together with sound therapy can help improve flexibility for the condition. The disease can affect people between the ages of forty to sixty years old, and occurs more often in women than men. Moreover, people suffering from diabetes also have an increased risk of having the condition. When someone has frozen shoulder, the capsule thickens and becomes stiff and tight. The presence of adhesions which are thick bands of tissue are seen in many cases and there is also less synovial fluid in the joint. The main hallmark of the disease is severe pain and being unable to move your shoulder –either on your own or with the help of somebody. As mentioned, there are three stages in adhesive capsulitis:
- Freezing – this stage the patient slowly experiences more and more pain and as it gets worse the shoulder also loses range of motion. It usually lasts from 6 weeks to 9 months.
- Frozen – During this stage the pain actually improves but there is a considerable amount of stiffness. Daily activities may be quite difficult during the four to six months of this stage.
- Thawing – in this stage shoulder motion improves and there is return to close or completely normal strength and motion from six months to two years. Your risk of developing the condition increases if you are recovering from a medical condition or procedure that stops you from moving your arm like a mastectomy or stroke. It is also not the norm for adhesive capsulitis to recur in the same shoulder but in some patients the pain and stiffness may also develop again but on the opposite side.
Etiology of Frozen Shoulder
It is difficult to know why a frozen shoulder actually occurs in patients. There is no concrete connection to arm dominance or occupation of the person suffering from pain because of it. There are however, a few factors that can increase the possibility of developing adhesive capsulitis.
- Diabetes – The disease more often occurs in patients with diabetes but the reason for this is not fully understood. Moreover, diabetic patients suffering from the condition tend to also have a greater degree of pain and stiffness that continues for a prolonged period before actually reaching the thawing stage.
- Other Conditions – Other medical problems associated with adhesive capsulitis are: hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, cardiac and Parkinson’s disease.
- Immobilization – There is an increased risk of developing frozen shoulder if the joint in question has been immobilized for a period of time because of surgery, a fracture or some other injury. Allowing patients to move their shoulders soon after a surgical intervention is one measure to stop the development of the condition.
The pain that is associated with the condition is described as aching or dull. It is usually worse in the course of the disease and when you move your arm. The pain is concentrated in the outer shoulder area and the upper arm.
Once a complete history and discussion of symptoms, the doctor will look at the affected shoulder and examine it more thoroughly. He will move it carefully in all directions to determine if there is really limitation of movement. The range of motion when someone else moves it is called passive range of motion. It will be compared to the range of motion you display when you move your shoulder on your own also known as active range of motion. Patients affected with adhesive capsulitis have both limited active and passive range of motion.
There are other tests that can help the healthcare provider to rule out other causes for the pain and stiffness.
- X-Rays – Dense structures like bone show up clearly and may show other issues like arthritis in the shoulder.
- MRI and ultrasound – These imaging modalities can create better images of the soft tissues but they are not required to diagnose the condition. However, they may help identify other issues like a torn rotator cuff.
