PAINFUL SHOULDER / FROZEN SHOULDER TREATMENT
It is not always clear why a patient develops shoulder complaints except it is due to trauma. In general, the pain prevents the patient from sleeping on the affected side. The localization and radiation pattern of the pain can provide an indication as to whether one is dealing with a primary disease of the shoulder joint or with a cause external to the joint. Degenerative disease and overuses are the common in shoulder pain along with some inflammatory diseases.
The shoulder is comprised of three bones: the humerus, scapula and calvicle. The shoulder is a very mobile joint and receives minimal stability from the bony structures. The soft tissue of the shoulder, including the rotator cuff muscles and joint capsule, function to help provide stability to the most mobile shoulder joint.

Decreased motion of the shoulder
Frozen shoulder without any known cause starts with pain. This pain prevents you from moving your arm. The lack of movement leads to stiffness and then even less motion. Over time, you become unable to perform activities such as reaching over your head or behind you.
Based on your symptoms and examination (movements restriction) of your shoulder, x-rays or MRI of the shoulder (as per requirement) will give the diagnosis.
