Frozen Shoulders

Updated: Apr 26

Cause


the cause of Frozen Shoulder is still unknown, but it occurs in most people around the age of 50. Most scholars believe that it is because of inflammation of the joint capsule. And usually it only happens once in a lifetime. In my clinical experience, it is usually started by strain to the shoulder or neck, and if detected early, there is a chance to prevent it from happening.
