Whilst the cause is unknown, people with diabetes, hyperthyroidism or lung disease might be predisposed to having this condition
Pain in the shoulder that is limited in ALL shoulder movement is often called Adhesive Capsulitis. There is often no trauma and is insidious in onset.
There is often 3 stages
Stage 1- inflammatory stage- we recommend sleeping on the the unaffected side and on the affected side have a pillow for support to avoid internal rotation of the shoulder
Stage 2- stiffening stage - we recommend walk walking exercises, pulley exercises and muscle stretching
Stage3- Thawing stage- Perform active Codmans and Wall walking exercise as well as rotator cuff muscle stretches
