Adults with frozen shoulder Comparison of the effects of high grade mobilisation and low grade mobilisation Excerpt :

Up to five percent of the general population is affected by frozen shoulder and adhesive capsulitis, respectively. Its duration can possibly last three years and physiotherapy is a substantial part of conservative treatment. In particular, mobilisation treatment seems to play a major part, especially in the stiffness dominant stage. There is uncertainty about which mobilisation treatment works best in frozen shoulder. Whereas a stiff joint is commonly treated with success by so called end range mobilisation techniques, there is a widespread belief that this mobilisation referring to the frozen shoulder has negative effects on the condition and its healing. Therefore, it is inappropriate and ought to be substituted by so called low grade techniques. This report undertakes an evidence based approach in evaluating these mobilisation techniques in terms of their clinical effectiveness concerning joint mobility and possible adverse effects. In addition, economic issues are regarded. These evaluations consist of formulating a clearly focused research question, employing a structured search for an answer and critically appraising the findings. As a result, there is strong internal and external evidence to recommend high grade mobilisation techniques in stiffness dominant adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder in comparison to the low grade technique with a difference in the outcomes being small. Particularly, passive abduction after three and twelve months as well as active and passive external rotation after twelve months had a better outcome in comparison to low grade technique treatment. No adverse effects are reported. In addition, economic efficiency demonstrates also slight advantages for high grade treatment. The report finally develops a hypothetical plan of implementing the results into current practice. National policy yet lacks information and advice in this field. Therefore, this result should be utilised within.

Shoulder Stiffness Excerpt :

This book provides an up-to-date overview of the latest evidence regarding shoulder stiffness or frozen shoulder. All aspects are covered: epidemiology, etiology, anatomy and biomechanics, clinical symptoms, histology and laboratory tests, physical examinations, imaging studies and the various conservative and surgical treatment options. The book is published in cooperation with ISAKOS and reflects the conclusions of the Consensus Meeting of the ISAKOS Upper Extremity Committee in Amsterdam in May 2014, which brought together global opinion leaders in the field. Frozen shoulder itself remains shrouded in mystery. There is ongoing uncertainty over its causation and continuing relative neglect due to the belief that it is a self-limited disease despite the evidence that most patients fail to achieve complete recovery, with many experiencing persistent pain and stiffness. Shoulder Stiffness: Current Concepts and Concerns provides an excellent summary of present knowledge regarding frozen shoulder and will be of value to all who manage the condition.
