Treatment of Frozen Shoulder by Manipulation under Anesthesia with Intra-Articular Injection
Dr. Mohd Iqbal Wani | Dr. Qazi Waris Manzoor
Abstract: 90 patients who failed to improve after conservative treatment with idiopathic frozen shoulder, were studied prospectively. They were then managed by manipulation under anaesthesia (MUA).45 patients were also given with intra-articular injection (methylprednisolone), and 45 werent given steroid. All patients were put on physiotherapy. Patients were followed for an average of 9 months. At 9 months the patients who had MUA with an intra-articular steroid had results similar to those who only had MUA. The manipulative procedure combined with or without injection of steroid is safe and effective for the treatment of frozen shoulder.
