Treatment & Therapy for Frozen Shoulder

Treatment & Diagnosis of Adhesive Capsulitis

Adhesive capsulitis is a condition in which the shoulder capsule, a connective tissue surrounding the shoulder joint, becomes inflamed and stiff. This limits the range of motion in the shoulder and can be extremely painful.

There are three main stages of adhesive capsulitis:

  • Freezing, a stage characterized by pain and loss of motion
  • Frozen,a stage in which pain may lessen but stiffness remains.
  • Thawing,a stage in which motion gradually returns.

The Physicians typically diagnose adhesive capsulitis using a combination of a physical examination and imaging tests, such as an MRI or X-ray. Once we've made a diagnosis, we can work with you to develop your treatment plan. The goal of adhesive capsulitis treatment is to reduce pain and regain range of motion in the shoulder.

Treatment options will vary depending on the severity of the condition, but may include:

  • Physical therapy: A physical therapist can help stretch and strengthen the muscles around the shoulder to improve range of motion.
  • Manual therapy: Manipulation of the shoulder joint by a trained professional can help reduce pain and improve range of motion.
  • Injections: A corticosteroid injection can help reduce inflammation and pain.
  • Surgery: In severe cases, a surgical procedure called shoulder arthroscopy may be necessary to release the shoulder capsule.
