Shoulder instability is a common injury for High School and College athletes. Recently, Dr. Arvesen, orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist at OrthoTexas, participated in research to look at the frequency of these injuries, the symptoms, and the treatments available for them.
The hallmark symptoms of frozen shoulder include pain and restricted range of motion. Often, this pain occurs for no good reason and most people cannot pinpoint a particular time or injury in which the pain began. We call this an insidious onset. Over time, patients begin to feel more pain as their shoulder gets stiffer.
