ANATOMY SHOULDER JOINT:

Shoulder joint is rather complex, your arm or humerus bone is a ball shape like structure on the upper part of the arm which is attached to the a deep hole that is known as socket of the shoulder blade(scapular bone). So, the shoulder joint is also known as the glenohumeral – is called ball-and-socket joint. The shoulder  capsule ligament around the shoulder joint help to stabilize and protecting the ball and socket joint  hence, giving you the full range of motion of your shoulder movement.

Adhesive Capsulitis is the medical term for Frozen Shoulder.

Poor sleeping posture is another prevalent  cause of frozen shoulder related to habitual of repetitive sleeping on one side of the body. Everyone has a comfortable sleeping posture habit and typically most of the shoulder pain or frozen shoulder are the result of sleeping laterally (on the side).

The weight bearing sleeping on one side of the body progressively accumulated the tension and tenderness on the shoulder.  The typical complaints of such shoulder pain are nerve pinching sensation causing numbness tingling pain.  So much so exacerbated to an adhesive capsulitis also known as frozen shoulder.
