Frozen Shoulder also called adhesive capsulitis is a common shoulder disorder that causes pain, stiffness and loss of normal range of motion in shoulder resulting in shoulder immobility.
Our shoulder joints are protected by smooth tissues and muscles surrounding joint. The shoulder capsules are made up of strong connective tissue to help our shoulder move more easily. In frozen shoulder, tissue of the shoulder capsule become thick, stiff and inflamed. It is this condition that causes the pain in the shoulder accompanied with limited motion.
During the early stage of the condition, sufferers will complain with the shoulder stiffness and pain around the shoulder joint worsen during the night. Sometimes, they will be having difficulty lifting their shoulders and reach out for things. This early stage is also known as freezing stage which normally last from 6 weeks – 9 months.
During the 4th to 6th months, the painful symptoms may actually improve during this stage, however, stiffness will either remain or worsen affecting daily activities. This is the stage we called Frozen stage.
The last phase is known as Thawing stage. In which the range of motion of the shoulder slowly improves and return to normal or close to normal after 6 months to 2 years.

There is no definite answer for what is causing frozen shoulder but an inflammatory process is involved in the shoulder joint. Some of the reports stated that the actual cause is associated with autoimmune disorder. Others relate it to muscles, tendons, and inflamed bursae of the shoulder girdle.
The most common causes of frozen shoulder is injury or irritation to the attaching soft tissue such as ligaments, muscles, and tendons as well as bursae around the shoulder. All these soft tissues surrounding the shoulder joints play their own role in shoulder stability and shoulder mobility. Any damages to each one of them will cause degenerative changes leading to inflammation which results in pain and stiffness.

Always warm up your shoulder before performing your exercises. The best way to do that is to take a warm shower or bath for 10 to 15 minutes. You can also use a moist heating pad or damp towel heated in the microwave, but it may not be as effective.
In performing the following exercises, stretch to the point of tension but not pain.
