Frozen shoulder technically referred as Adhesive capsulitis presents as a painful and movement restricting disorder of the capsule of shoulder joint; the connective tissue surrounding the glenohumeral joint of the shoulder causing inflammation and stiffness. The cause of it is unclear and yet to be established as per the conventional science. The pain usually aggravates when at rest and lying but shows some degree of amelioration when the affected joint is subjected to movements.frozen shoulder_poadmanilyam blog_drawing by Dr.Bhat

In frozen shoulder at certain cases, the synovial fluid would be lacking causing stress during active and passive movements restricting the range of movement (R.O.M). At other times, in certain subjects the shoulder capsule get  thickened causing swelling due to a band of scar tissue aka adhesions getting  formed with in the shoulder capsule. There by, providing less space within the joint for the humerus, restricting the movement of the shoulder making it get stiff and painful.
