Adhesive capsulitis is a relatively common shoulder condition that can be a challenge to manage. This condition is often considered self-limiting, and the entire process (from freezing through thawing) can last years, facilitating significant functional loss for the individual. This chapter will focus on the management of the condition, including risks, screening and examination, interventions strategies, and prognosis.
2. Shoulder Impingement and Rotator Cuff Syndrome
Shoulder pain accounts for one third of physician office visits for musculoskeletal pain, and the most frequent cause of shoulder pain is shoulder impingement and rotator cuff syndrome. Shoulder impingement and rotator cuff syndrome can be difficult to manage and can result in chronic pain and impairments. This chapter will provide up to date, evidence based management strategies for patients with shoulder pain consistent with impingement or rotator cuff involvement.
Shoulder instability can take on many forms. While instability from a mechanical deficit is one potential cause, a patient can also have shoulder instability from muscle weakness and control issues, as well as age related inherent stability issues. This chapter will provide an overview of the assessment and management of shoulder instability, especially as it relates to orthopaedic practice.
