The most obvious symptoms of Frozen Shoulder are shoulder pain and a limited range of movement in the shoulder.
There are three stages of a Frozen Shoulder, namely:
- Freezing stage (stage 1) — This is the painful stage and shoulder movement is limited; this stage normally lasts from 6 to 12 weeks
- Frozen stage (stage 2) — The pain eases in this stage, but the stiffness remains; this stage generally lasts from 4 to 6 months
- Thawing stage (stage 3) — In the final stage, the movement in the arm gradually improves; this stage can last more than 1 year
