Your shoulder is considered a ball-and-socket joint. It is made up of your upper arm (humerus), shoulder blade (scapula), and collarbone (clavicle). The surrounding tissue (muscles, ligaments, tendons) hold everything together. With FROZEN shoulder these tissues become thick and tight. Bands of scar tissue form and there's less liquid (synovial fluid) to keep the joint lubricated. This limits the joint motion even more.
