Shoulder Arthroscopic capsular release

Frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis is a condition that causes stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint. Treatment of frozen shoulder involves range-of-motion exercises and sometimes, arthroscopic surgery.

The bones, ligaments and tendons in the shoulder joint are encased in connective tissue. When this tissue thickens and tightens around the shoulder join, movement is restricted.

Doctors are not sure exactly why this happens, but it has been observed to be more common in diabetics and those who have recently had to immobilize their shoulder for a long period.

Why get arthroscopic capsular release?

Arthroscopic capsular release is the best form of treatment for pain and loss of mobility from frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis). The procedure is done by our orthopedic doctors through a keyhole using a radio frequency probe (special instrument used to cut).
