Of all the joints in the human body, the shoulder has the greatest range of motion. This allows complex movements and functions to be carried out, and is of vital importance to the activities of daily living and work. Any restriction or pain that involves the joint puts a huge amount of strain on patients, especially those who are in their most productive years of life. Frozen shoulder, a frequently encountered disorder of the shoulder, has been well recognised since the early 1900s. Although benign, it has great impact on the quality of life of patients. This article aims to provide an overview of the nature and the widely accepted management of this condition based on other studies.
