The main symptoms caused by frozen shoulder, or Adhesive Capsulitis, would be initial pain in the joint and decreased mobility. Anyone, at any age, can suffer from frozen shoulder, but it is most commonly seen in people who are 40 to 70 years old and most of them women. It is normally caused by injury, misuse, lack of use, myocardial infarction, and upper torso surgery (arm and shoulder surgery or mastectomy). Any of these can cause the joint to tighten, which decreases mobility. Fortunately, our Dr. Hume, DC can help resolve frozen shoulder problems.
