If you’re having trouble lifting your arm above your head, reaching across your body or behind your back, your problem can be defined as a decreased range of motion in your shoulder. Limited motion is an early symptom of a frozen shoulder, which is a general term denoting all causes of motion loss in the shoulder.
Affects more women than men.
Usual onset begins between ages 40 and 65.
Affects approximately 10% to 20% of diabetics.
Other predisposing factors include:
- A period of enforced immobility, resulting from trauma, overuse injuries or surgery.
- Cardiovascular disease
- Clinical depression.
- Parkinson’s disease.
Causes of frozen shoulder
The cause of frozen shoulder is congested liver - intrahepatic stones.
The capsule surrounding the shoulder joint thickens and contracts. This leaves less space for the upper arm bone (humerus) to move around. Frozen shoulder can also develop after a prolonged immobilization because of trauma or surgery to the joint. Usually only one shoulder is affected, although in about one-third of cases, motion may be limited in both arms.
To cure it, start flushing your liver and improve your diet.
