Abstract

Adhesive capsulitis is a painful musculoskeletal condition of the glenohumeral joint causing limitation of motion and pain. To date the aetiology of adhesive capsulitis remains somewhat of a mystery. Standard of care generally consists of conservative management which can be followed by surgical intervention if adequate function is not attained. Conservative treatment can often be a long and frustrating course. Patience and persistence usually prevail with a functional return following either conservative or surgical intervention.
