Frostbite Frostbite is damage to the tissues of the body caused by low temperature.
Any part of the body may be affected by frostbite however the parts most likely to be affected are the tip (extremity) of the nose, ears, hands and feet.
Frostbite requires medical attention. If the frostbite is superficial new pink skin will form under the discoloured skin.
Frozen shoulder It is a condition that affects your ability to move your shoulder around. There is stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint, which reduces normal movement in this area.
Recovery can be slow and symptoms usually last for two to three years, although for some people it is much faster than this.
Early treatment of frozen shoulder can help to prevent long-term stiffness in the joint. Make sure you gently stretch the shoulder before exercising, and try to maintain good posture.
