Many people with diabetes are at a higher risk for being diagnosed with adhesive capsulitis, more commonly known as frozen shoulder, as touched upon in a previous post.
In fact, according to the American Diabetes Association, 10-20% of individuals with diabetes are affected by frozen shoulder. The ADA also provides that women are more likely to suffer from this often debilitating condition. Further, it occurs most frequently in people between the ages of 40 and 60.
Frozen shoulder has the potential to be incredibly painful. Therefore, it’s important to establish a routine that allows you to alleviate some of the symptoms.
