Abstract

Adhesive capsulitis is a condition characterised by the spontaneous onset of pain, and progressive movement restriction/limitation. The etiology of adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder is still unknown. Patients often complain about pain, especially overnight, and progressive reduction of range of motion. Conservative treatment can be performed b physioterapy, corticosteroid injection and capsular distension. When conservative treatment fails, surgical treatment is indicated, it is characterized by either open or arthroscopic treatment followed by manipulation. The aim of this article is to provide the literature and our experience results of the most used treatments.
