Are you tired of dealing with the pain, stiffness, and limited range of motion that come with frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis? A painful shoulder makes it super difficult to do everyday tasks like getting dressed (like hooking a bra 😭) or reaching for something on a high shelf.

Now, here’s the thing…frozen shoulder involves more than just inflammation. Fibrotic changes can occur, which is why using ice alone may not be your best bet to alleviate symptoms.

And recent research out of Duke University has shed some light on a possible link between menopause and the incidence of frozen shoulder.

So grab a cup of tea, get cozy, and let’s nerd out on all things frozen shoulder. Your shoulders will thank you!
