In brief: Inflamed shoulder
Adhesive capsulitis is an inflammatory shrinkage of the shoulder capsule that limits motion and causes pain.
We do not know what causes this process to start. It will resolve without treatment is in 2-5 years, but you should seek treatment of steroid injections and pt. If that fails to help after 6 months, you are a candidate for an arthroscopic capsular release.
