Frozen shoulder is rather a vague term which generally implies a painful stiff shoulder in a middle aged or elderly person without an obvious cause. Extremes of motion especially abduction, and external and internal rotation are painful and this pain is often referred down the arm. The condition goes by other names also like ‘periarthritis of the shoulder’, ‘subacromial bursitis’ and ‘check-rein shoulder’ (Quigley 1954). Our past experience of treating advanced cases of ‘frozen shoulder’ conservatively had been so disappointing that 5 years ago we started trying manipulation under general anaesthesia for such patients.
