A condition marked by stiffness and discomfort in your shoulder joint is frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis. Typically, signs and symptoms start progressively, deteriorate over time and then resolve, usually within one to three years.

When you recover from a medical condition or operation that prevents you from moving your limb, such as a stroke or a mastectomy, your risk of having a frozen shoulder increases.

Frozen shoulder therapy includes range-of-motion exercises inserted into the joint capsule and, occasionally, corticosteroids and numbing drugs. Arthroscopic surgery may be advised to loosen the joint capsule in a limited percentage of cases so that it can be moved.


Typically, the frozen shoulder grows slowly and in three phases. A number of months will last for each process.

Step of Freezing. Any shoulder movement causes discomfort, and the range of motion of your shoulder begins to become limited.

Step Frozen. During this process, pain can begin to diminish. Your shoulder becomes stiffer, though, and it becomes more difficult to use it.

Step thawing. It starts to enhance the range of motion in your shoulder.

The pain worsens at night for certain people, often disturbing sleep.
