The onset of this condition is usually gradual with stiffness and pain increasing over time. Women are more prone to developing Frozen Shoulder than men. and the condition is most common between the ages of 40-60 years old.

Frozen Shoulder is also more common in those who have endured a period of decreased shoulder mobility (eg. post injury, post mastectomy) and for those with diabetes.

Clinicians at CCHN use a variety of conservative techniques to reduce the symptoms of Frozen Shoulder including mobilisation of the shoulder joint, passive range of motion techniques (to increase mobility) and stretching.
