A frozen shoulder – also called adhesive capsulitis – is a condition that causes the shoulder joint to become increasingly stiff and painful. The symptoms include loss of movement and worsening pain, which can be particularly bad at night.
A frozen shoulder can be extremely painful. It is caused by inflammation of the joint lining and/or restricted movement due to the formation of scar tissue. Read our mini-guide to shoulder Hydrodilatations, a treatment that can help ease the pain of a frozen shoulder.
