Adhesive capsulitis, sometimes called “frozen shoulder,” occurs when the shoulder capsule thickens, causing adhesions that result in pain and stiffness. Adhesive capsulitis can be treated conservatively using anti-inflammatory medication, steroid injections, and/or physical therapy. After failed conservative management, shoulder arthroscopy is indicted, and may include shaving of the shoulder capsule and manipulation under anesthesia to break up adhesions.
