The phenomenon called “frozen shoulder” is one that scientists have decided to test out to determine whether or not it is a myth. It commonly refers to inflamed tissue in the shoulder. The frozen bit is entirely made up, but the inflammation is definitely a real occurrence. However, treatment should be restricted to the joint rather than the tissue.

Key Takeaways:

  • Codman coined the term “frozen shoulder” and suggested that the shoulder stiffness could resolve, which would be consistent with inflammatory pathologies such as bursitis or tendonitis
  • Julius Neviaser demonstrated that surgical release of capsular adhesions restored shoulder motion in 10 cases of limited shoulder motion and coined the more accurate term “adhesive capsulitis.”
  • For people with stiff and painful shoulders, a misinformed prognosis may lead to them not seeking care and hoping for a recovery that is doubtful even after many months of limitations
