How does it feel?

The two main sensations felt with adhesive capsulitis are pain and a loss of movement in the shoulder. The Pain may be aching, dull or stabbing, and is most frequently felt deep in the shoulder and over the outside of the upper arm. It is generally aggravated by almost all movements of the shoulder and arm, and its intensity or strength may vary from day-to-day depending on how much you use the arm. The pain is often strong enough to interfere with your normal activities and you may feel it at night when sleeping. The loss of movement in the shoulder results from the adhesions or scars forming within the joint capsule. These generally develop gradually resulting in a progressive rather than sudden loss in the range of motion in the Shoulder. Stretching of these adhesions may aggravate your pain.

What should you do?

If you have or suspect you have adhesive capsulitis you should seek the assistance of a Chiropractor or Physiotherapist as soon as possible.

What shouldn’t you do?

If you have or suspect you have adhesive capsulitis you shouldn’t ignore the problem. The longer you leave the condition without treatment, the worse it may become. This may make your pain and restriction in movement worse and prolong your recovery.
