Shoulder pain

February 18, 2013
People aged 40 years and older, and women in particular, are more likely to experience shoulder pain "frozen shoulder," which can be caused by injury to the rotator cuff that leads to immobility. Adhesive capsulitis (the medical term) involves inflammation of the watertight sac, known as capsule, which bathes the shoulder in nutritious fluid. When irritation caused by throwing leads to chronic inflammation, scar tissue may develop within and around the joint. Adhesive capsulitis can progress to the point where the shoulder is rendered immobile, hence the name "frozen shoulder", causing shoulder pain. The key to effectively treating this condition is early intervention. Proper shoulder function and motion can be restored by addressing both joint mechanics and supporting muscles.
