Frozen shoulder is not as simple as the shoulder getting stuck. There are two ways to develop frozen shoulder.

A true “adhesive capsulitis” is when you literally wake up from one day to the next with extreme pain. That pain is constant and stops you from moving and then the joint gets stuck. There are several phases to it and therapy can help.

The other way is the most common way people think about frozen shoulder. If you hurt your shoulder and then unconsciously or consciously decide not to use your shoulder fully because of pain, then over a short period of time the shoulder joint itself gets stiff and gets stuck. You end up with a frozen shoulder. It can be painful all the time or it can be painful when you try to move it. Either way, there is pain. The longer you cannot move your shoulder fully, the more your shoulder will be in pain.
