Frozen shoulder (also known as adhesive capuslitis) is a painful stiffness of the shoulder. Sometimes this occurs after a shoulder injury but many times an injury is not recalled. In the absence of a structural problem, most of the time a frozen shoulder will loosen up with aggressive physical therapy. Depending on the response to therapy, surgery may be needed, especially if a structural problem is identified.
