Diabetes Raises Your Risk of Having Frozen Shoulders

Approximately 20% of diabetic patients suffer from frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis; shoulder stiffness, along with decreased range of motion and pain. (American Diabetes Association)

 

How Diabetes May Cause Frozen Shoulders

Excess glucose in the bloodstream can make the collagen in the shoulder sticky and thick. Collagen is a major building block in the ligaments that hold the bones together in a joint. When collagen stiffens, joints start to hurt and the pain prevents you from moving your arm.

 

Poor Circulation Endangers Health

High blood sugar can damage your blood vessels, affecting circulation to the ends of your limbs and destroy nerves in the area. Not only does excess blood sugar stiffen collagen, it can form into plaque that causes cardiovascular disease.

 

Prevention Better Than Cure

If you have diabetes and have had a shoulder injury or pain, keep the shoulder moving with physical therapy like stretching to gain back mobility and prevent frozen shoulders as the lack of movement results in increased lack of use and stiffness to the muscles and joints.
