Frozen shoulder: Teri Hatcher has frozen shoulder, or adhesive capsulitis - Health Key

The television show "Extra" is reporting that "Desperate Housewives" star Teri Hatcher suffers from a disorder called frozen shoulder.  Hatcher told the program that frozen shoulder "is a real condition which women get.  It's basically left me pretty much not functioning with my left arm...I can't hook a bra anymore."  

So what else do we know about frozen shoulder?

According to the website of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, occurs when the shoulder capsule -- the strong connective tissue surrounding the shoulder joint -- gets inflamed, thickens and tightens.  Often, someone with frozen shoulder also has less synovial fluid to lubricate the joint.
