Frozen Shoulder Syndrome

This condition is known by doctors as adhesive capsulitis which causes stiffness and pain in the joints of your shoulder. You would notice that it begins gradually and gets worse. After one to three years, it usually resolves successfully.

Many times, you can develop frozen shoulder if you don’t move your shoulder due to a medical condition or surgery, such as a mastectomy or stroke.

The treatment for this condition includes exercise to improve the range of motion. At times, your doctor may inject corticosteroids along with numbing medication directly into the capsule of the joint. In a few cases, arthroscopic surgery will help loosen the joint capsule so you can move it more freely.

It does not often recur in the same shoulder, but at times, people develop frozen shoulder again in the opposite shoulder.

Humans depend on the neck remaining in good condition. When a strong force injures your neck, or if you develop inflammation or degeneration, you will experience pain and perhaps disability.

Younger people usually incur damage caused by an injury. Sports injuries, vehicle accidents, and other blunt-force trauma can cause permanent harm and disability.

Older persons usually have more cases of degenerative disk disability. A lifetime of wear and tear can cause sometimes excruciating, long-term problems. Other common diseases of the neck can produce pain and disability.

Shoulder Difficulties
The human form has four appendages, both arms and two legs, that allow us to walk, crawl, reach, push, and pull. Our legs and arms are critical to our survival as a species. Your shoulders connect your neck to your upper arms.

Rotator Cuff Injuries

That impressive range of motion of the glenohumeral joint is due to the rotator cuff, a commonly injured group of four tendons. The purpose of ligaments is to connect your muscles to bones. When the rotator cuff tendons become inflamed, damaged, or swollen, then lifting your arm over your head may be nearly impossible.
