What is a Frozen Shoulder?
What are the symptoms of a Frozen Shoulder?
Other than the stiffness of the joint, you will likely feel a dull, deep ache in the shoulder. You can occasionally feel symptoms referring into the upper arm and around the muscles of the shoulder. The stiffness you encounter will limit movement in all directions of the joint. A frozen shoulder often progresses in three stages:
Freezing – at first you will notice the pain in your joint with some limitation to your movement
Frozen – afterwards the pain will ease but the stiffness worsens, further limiting your shoulder movement
Thawing – the range of movement begins to return to normal. This whole process can take up to 3 years!
