Which type of arm pain is accompanied by an inability to reach backwards?

Upper Arm Pain from Frozen Shoulder

Adhesive capsulitis, more commonly known as frozen shoulder, is a condition of the upper arm which occurs with inflammation of the shoulder joint. Specifically, the inflammation surrounds the lining of the shoulder joint to produce arm pain above and below the shoulder joint. As thickening of the lining endures, the joint immobilizes and causes pain in the surrounding muscles.

Frozen shoulder can afflict people between the ages of 40 and 60, and it often occurs with the onset of diabetes. Symptoms of frozen shoulder include:

  • Arm pain
  • Restricted motion and stiffness
  • Muscle aching
Frozen shoulder is often manifested with a slow onset of pain, and as it worsens, arm pain causes lost motion and may become completely immobile. Usually, a frozen shoulder can be indicated by an inability to reach backwards with the arm.

Over time, some cases of frozen shoulder may naturally heal. However, it is necessarily to consult a doctor if you wish to receive the swiftest and most optimal recovery.
