Frozen shoulder

Spontaneous frozen shoulder should be identified from three diagnostic characteristics: severe pain during sudden movements especially in extreme positions, continuous pain at night and limited range of motion at the shoulder joint both during active and passive movements. A frozen shoulder will usually heal on its own but may be treated at an early stage with an intra-articular corticosteroid injection. Symptom relief may be achieved with analgesia and an application of cold.
