Frozen shoulder is a painful condition that can last from months to years. The capsule around the shoulder joint becomes very inflamed causing pain and progressive restriction in shoulder range of motion. It is more common in women and patients with autoimmune conditions such as hypothyroidism and diabetes. A history of trauma to the shoulder is also common. Typical initial treatments include anti-inflammatory medications, physiotherapy and icing. Unfortunately, these treatments are often of limited use. Thankfully, there are new, innovative options to treat this disease.
