Likely.: A frozen shoulder is caused by collapse of the shoulder joint capsule, and adhesion of the capsule onto itself.
During pt, sometimes the capsule is stretched and the adhesion may come apart. It can be very painful. It should resolve with time, but if you are concerned, notify your physician.
