- Fracture of arm and due to that immobility causes the capsule of shoulder to stiffen.
- Diabetes- diabetic patients are more likely to develop it.
- Patients with hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, Parkinson’s disease, and certain heart disease.
Frozen shoulder develops slowly and in three stages.
Each stage can last for a number of months.
- Freezing stage: any movement of the shoulder causes pain, and range of motion becomes limited. So this is sometimes referred as painful stage.
- Frozen stage: it is also known as adhesive stage.
Shoulder becomes stiff and use of it causes intense pain.
- Thawing stage: the range of motions of the shoulder begins to improve.

Structural problems can only be ruled out with the help of X RAY and MRI.
Physiotherapy can always work as conjunctive mode of treatment that excellently improves the condition of the patient.
