Frozen shoulder: we’ve all heard of it but do we really understand it and know how to treat it? The answer is probably no, because it is a bit of a conundrum. Its aetiology is unclear and there is a lack of consensus for best management. Added to which it can last for a long time (years) and patients often do not fully recover. Physical therapy, however, can speed resolution and improve outcomes. This article will help you to accurately diagnose this condition and provides you with all the information you need to tailor an individualised treatment plan for your patient based on both biomedical and psychosocial factors for optimal outcome.
