Combination Treatment for Adhesive Capsulitis of Shoulder
Keywords:Adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder, hydraulic distention
One hundred and forty (140) patients (150 shoulders) with adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) were treated by a combination of intra-articular local anaesthetic, steroid and hydraulic distention of involved shoulder. The mean duration of the syndrome at the time of treatment was 10 months and all the patients suffered from disabling pain and stiffness. Rapid improvement was seen after this treatment and at two weeks, 87 % (13 1/150) of the shoulders had no or slight pain and 90 % (135/150) of the shoulders had normal or almost normal range of motion. The treatment was well tolerated and no complication was recorded. The combination treatment for adhesive capsulitis of shoulders is safe, yields immediate results and is very cost effective.
