Frozen shoulder (Adhesive capsulitis) has been defined as a condition characterized by both active
and passive loss of motion. Zuckerman et al further classified Frozen shoulder into primary and secondary groups. Primary or idiopathic frozen shoulder has by definition no clear cause. The initial treatment consists of conservative
management with NSAID, Physiotherapy, intra-articular steroids or saline and in some instances manipulation under
anaesthesia. Once in a while there are cases which are refractory to conservative treatment and manipulation under anaesthesia has its risks like fractures and rotator cuff tears. Arthroscopic capsular release of stiff shoulders has been done providing excellent functional outcome and reproducible results.
