Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)


What is it?

Adhesive capsulitis is stiffness and pain in shoulder joint that begins gradually and worsens over time.




No specific cause for frozen shoulder. Increased risk for developing frozen shoulder increases if you injury your shoulder or have procedure (surgery, stroke, mastectomy) that prevents you from moving your arm.

I completed a six week internship with RMPT, part of which I was with Rob in the Loveland office. Rob is an extremely knowledgeable, professional, and caring DPT. I thoroughly enjoyed my time learning the trade from him. I highly recommend this office for your physical therapy needs. -Chelsey, Loveland (Google Review 5stars)
