Adhesive capsulitis is a very frequent pathology in middle-aged women. It consists of a clinical picture that presents with intense pain and limitation of mobility, especially external rotation.
Although there are several theories, in most cases the etiology is unknown.
The diagnostic presumption begins with the clinical history, where the result of the examination is crucial. The diagnosis is confirmed by an MRI.
Generally, the treatment of this pathology is performed through rehabilitation, although in acute pain crisis it may be indicated to perform one or several infiltrations with anti-inflammatory medication. In cases where improvement is not obtained, an arthroscopic capsulotomy may be necessary.
It consists of performing a capsular release called arthroscopic capsulotomy, among other structures.
