Doctor Speak | Dr. Anurag Awasthi | Frozen Shoulder

Dr. Anurag Awasthi, Consultant, Orthopaedics at the CK Birla Hospital for Women, Gurgaon talks about ‘frozen shoulder’ condition. Frozen shoulder is a condition in which shoulder movement gets restricted and it affects shoulder joint. In this condition the patient usually faces pain and stiffness which gets worse and take time to go away. A shoulder comprises of three bones in a ball-and-socket joint form. These are upper arm (humerus), shoulder blade (scapula), and collarbone (clavicle). The tissue surrounding the shoulder joint holds everything together which is known as a shoulder capsule. In a frozen shoulder condition, this capsule becomes thick and tight which restricts the movement.
