Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis)

Frozen shoulder (sometimes called adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder) is a condition where a shoulder becomes painful and stiff. Shoulder movements become reduced, sometimes completely ‘frozen’. It is thought to be due to scar-like tissue forming in the shoulder capsule. Without treatment, symptoms usually go but this may take up to 2-3 years.


As soon as Frozen Shoulder is diagnosed it is important that you treat it as soon as possible. Using Yoga as a therapy will help. Movement. Massage. Meditation and Pranayama will help immensely in freeing up the shoulder and the surrounding areas. Slow gentle movements and breathing will assist you in releasing the shoulder.

What is the symptom trying to tell you?

The shoulders and arms are related to the heart chakra and are also close to the throat chakra. A frozen shoulder tends to represent ‘frozen tears’. There is something you are holding back from, either saying or doing and the energy is stiffening your shoulder area. Usually these are matters of the heart, and a possible fear to move on in your life. Are you suppressing your true feelings, and experiencing too much strain/stress? Start being honest with yourself, and express your truth. You will then begin to be free (and so will your energies).
