This condition commonly affects people between the ages of 40-60 and occurs more often in women than men.
Some research has shown that underlying conditions such as diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hyperthyroidism are at a higher risk to develop this condition as well.
If you have frozen shoulder syndrome the common symptoms can include:
- Severe shoulder pain
- Reduced mobility of the shoulder in a capsular pattern with the loss in motion being the greatest with external rotation followed by abduction (raising arm to the side) and then flexion (forward motion)
- Pain in the shoulder that lasts for days or weeks and then resolves
The Board Certified Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Specialists at OrthoNeuro have helped thousands of patients with frozen shoulder syndrome return to an active and healthy lifestyle using a variety of treatment options.
