Maybe: Frozen shoulder is a condition that affects your shoulder joint. It usually involves pain and stiffness that develops gradually, gets worse and then finally goes away. This can take anywhere from a year to 3 years. Your shoulder is made up of three bones that form a ball-and-socket joint.Mar 14, 2019 Symptoms: Joint stiffness Frozen Shoulder - Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis, Treatmentwww.webmd.com ›
