What is a frozen shoulder (‘FS’)?frozen-shoulder-newmarket

Frozen shoulder, also called adhesive capsulitis, is a condition that causes restriction of motion and pain in the shoulder joint.

The cause of a frozen shoulder is often unknown, but there are certain people who seem to have a higher likelihood of developing this condition. Frozen shoulder causes the capsule surrounding the shoulder joint to contract and form scar tissue.

Who gets it?

Frozen shoulder syndrome affects 2-5% of the general population. In diabetics the incidence is between 10-20%.

 

imageFrozen Shoulder affects females slightly more than males (60:40) (Baslund 1990), typically between 40 and 60 years of age.

In Japan it is known as ‘fifties shoulder’.

The non-dominant arm is more likely to be involved (Fareed & Gallivan 1989).

About 12-15% of people are affected bilaterally , although involvement of the contralateral shoulder frequently occurs in a delayed fashion, after the initially affected shoulder starts to recover.
