Shoulder Pain vs Frozen Shoulder

Distinguishing between Rotator Cuff Tendon Pain & Frozen Shoulder

Frozen Shoulder, known as Adhesive Capsulitis is a common condition seen in our clinic. It affects mostly ages 40- 60 especially women. It usually has a gradual onset & gets worse with time. It has 3 stages and if caught early enough the subsequent stage may be prevented through conservative therapy.

1) Stage one- the freezing stage can last 6-9 months where a lot of pain and stiffness is experienced

2) Stage two- can also last for 6-9 months where the pain reduces but great stiffness is still present.

3) the third stage may on average take two or more years - This is where the condition seems to improve by itself over time. However if the diagnosis is made early enough and treated,the condition could be managed quicker.
