Abstract:  In order to achieve a positive outcome for individuals who are diagnosed with a “frozen joint” or adhesive capsulitits, a collaborative relationship among clinicians provides support and communication. The relationship should include the physical therapist, physician, and the pharmacist. Capsulitis, or capsular restriction, is often treated with anti-inflammatory agents, localized steroidal injections, directed physical therapy, or orthopedic visual inspection. The professional judgments of coordinating healthcare practitioners provide for assessments and plans that result in favorable outcomes with optimized recovery time.
