Also referred to as adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder is a condition whose symptoms include shoulder stiffness and pain. Symptoms may begin slowly and get worse over time if untreated. In most cases, the condition may occur due to limited shoulder movement following a shoulder injury, or there could be no obvious cause. There are also risk factors that increase chances of suffering from adhesive capsulitis. Those with a history of open heart disease, diabetes, cervical disk disease, shoulder trauma, and hyperthyroidism are at an increased risk of a frozen shoulder.
Loss of flexibility
A shoulder separation occurs when the collarbone is forced away from the shoulder bone. Usually, this happens as a result of a sharp fall or blow thereby causing a shoulder injury. It is a common sports injury especially in contact sports like rugby, football, wrestling, or hockey. You may experience shoulder bruising and shoulder weakness as a separated shoulder could stretch or tear one of the ligaments that support the shoulder joint.
