Adhesive capsulitis is better known as frozen shoulder. It is a condition whereby the shoulder joint of the person suffering, has stiffness and pain.
The shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint which consists of the bones, the ligaments and tendons holding the joint together, encapsulated in connective tissue.
When this capsule of connective tissue stiffens, it tightens around the bones, tendons and ligaments, thus restricting their movement.
Doctors have not been able to pinpoint the exact cause of this condition. However, some factors increase the chances of occurrence of this condition:
Women above the age of 40 are more likely to have this condition.
Persons with reduced mobility of the joint due to factors such as broken arm, recovery from a surgery, stroke, rotator cuff injury are more prone.
Diseases such as diabetes, tuberculosis, cardiovascular conditions, Parkinson's disease, hyper or hypothyroidism too are prone to suffer from frozen shoulder.
There are preventive measures to avoid a frozen shoulder, which your physiotherapist or consulting doctor may help you with exercises. However, some cases may require surgery.
