Adhesive capsulitis commonly known as frozen shoulder is one of the lesser known diabetes complications. Frozen shoulder is not only painful but also leads to disability in daily activities.

What is frozen shoulder?

Frozen shoulder occurs when connective tissues around the shoulder joint are inflamed. This results in pain and stiffness which majorly restricts the shoulder joint movement.

It is progressive condition of 3 stages:

  1. Freezing – pain and gradual loss of shoulder movement
  2. Frozen – pain decreases but stiffness increases
  3. Thawing – recovery stage which lasts between 6 months to many

Relation between frozen shoulder and diabetes

Diabetics are at an increased risk of developing frozen shoulder because poorly controlled sugar levels effects collagen in shoulder joint, the main protein of connective tissue which holds shoulder joint bones together. Sugar molecules attach to collagen making it sticky resulting in stiffness of shoulder joint.
