Signs & Symptoms
What are the signs & symptoms of frozen shoulder?
The most pervasive sign / symptom of frozen shoulder is a persistently painful & stiff shoulder joint. Signs and symptoms of frozen shoulder develop gradually; usually in 3 stages in which signs & symptoms worsen gradually & resolve within a 2 year period. Loss of external rotation is differential sign from rotator calf tear.
The 3 hallmark signs include:
- Stage 1 (Freezing / Painful) — In the “freezing” stage, you slowly have more & more pain. As the pain worsens at night, your shoulder loses range of motion. Freezing usually lasts from 6 weeks to 9 months.
- Stage 2 (Frozen / Adhesive) — Painful symptoms may actually improve during this stage, but the stiffness remains. During the 4 to 6 months of the “frozen” stage, implementation of daily activities may be very difficult.
- Stage 3 (Thawing) — Shoulder motion improves during the “thawing” stage slowly. Complete return to normal / close to normal strength & motion typically takes from 6 months to 2 years.
What is the diagnosis of frozen shoulder?
Based on signs & symptoms & a physical exam; paying close attention to the arms & shoulders. Structural problems can only be identified with X-ray & MRI.
