In Ayurveda, Frozen shoulder condition is referred to as ‘Ababahuka’. It is caused by the vitiation of Vata dosha, which when accumulated in the joints absorbs fluid of the musculoskeletal causing the stiffness of the musculoskeletal.
Ayurveda explains 2 causes for the disease, the external and internal causes. External causes refers to the inflammation of the joints due to injury or a wrong sleeping posture. Internal causes of frozen shoulder come from irregular eating habits and the consumption of excessively pungent and bitter foods.
