Stages of Frozen Shoulder

Vida Clinic Frozen Shoulder

Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, progresses through three stages:

Freezing Stage

In this stage, shoulder pain gradually increases, and the range of motion begins to diminish. It may be accompanied by inflammation and stiffness.

Frozen Stage

During this stage, shoulder pain may stabilize or decrease, but stiffness and restricted mobility become more pronounced. Simple movements, such as lifting the arm or reaching behind the back, become challenging.

Thawing Stage

In the final stage, the shoulder gradually regains mobility and function. Pain subsides, and the range of motion improves, allowing for a return to normal activities.

Frozen Shoulder Symptoms


1 1

Shoulder Pain

Persistent pain in the shoulder joint, often worse at night or during movement, is a common symptom of frozen shoulder.

2 2

Stiffness and Restricted Mobility

Limited range of motion in the shoulder, making it difficult to perform everyday activities such as reaching, lifting, or combing hair.

3 3

Difficulty Sleeping

Shoulder pain and stiffness can make it challenging to find a comfortable sleeping position, leading to disrupted sleep patterns.

Frozen Shoulder Diagnosis

    Diagnosing frozen shoulder usually involves a combination of medical history evaluation, physical examination, and imaging tests. The process may include

    1. Medical History Assessment

    Your healthcare provider will discuss your symptoms, medical history, and any previous injuries or conditions that may have contributed to the development of frozen shoulder.

    2. Physical Examination

    The healthcare professional will evaluate your shoulder's range of motion, strength, and stability, assessing for signs of restricted mobility and pain.

    3. Imaging Tests

    X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or ultrasound may be used to rule out other conditions and assess the condition of the shoulder joint and surrounding tissues.
