Periarthritis also was known as the frozen shoulder is a condition characterized by stiffness and pain in your shoulder joint.
Shoulder pain is common in the primary care setting, responsible for 16% of all musculoskeletal complaints.
Periarthritis is the result of scarring, thickening, and shrinkage of the joint capsule that surrounds the normal shoulder joint. Long-term immobility of the shoulder joint can put people at risk to develop a frozen shoulder.
Periarthritis is a shoulder joint with significant loss of its range of motion in all directions. A frozen shoulder is medically referred to as adhesive capsulitis. Periarthritis occurs more frequently in patients with risk factors of diabetes, chronic inflammatory arthritis of the shoulder.
With a frozen shoulder, the capsule of the humerus – which is a loose joint capsule over the shoulder – becomes thick, tight, and very difficult to move. Periarthritis or frozen shoulder can take as long as two or three years to go away.
Periarthritis occurs two out of five people at some point in their lives. It commonly affects people aged between 40 and 60 years, and it is more likely in women than in men. It is estimated to affect about 3 percent of people.
It can affect one or both shoulders.
