Abstract

Adhesive capsulitis is a common problem seen in the general population by orthopedic surgeons. It is a problem that causes patients pain and disability, and symptoms can last up to 2 years and longer. The questions of when and how to treat the frozen shoulder can present challenges. Most treatments are conservative; however, indications for surgery do exist. Arthroscopic capsular release has gained popularity over the years and offers a predictably good treatment in patients with adhesive capsulitis. The purpose of this paper is to review the orthopedic literature on adhesive capsulitis, to provide background information on this topic, and to describe our technique in arthroscopic capsular release.
