Periarthritis shoulder also known as frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis of shoulder is a disabling condition, interfering activities of daily living of the patient. It is characterized by painful restriction of abduction and external rotation. Treatment of this condition by physiotherapy alone is time consuming and the rate of recovery is slow. In the present series 35 cases were treated by intra and periarticular infiltration of hydrocortisone acetate and lignocaine hydrochloride and manipulation under sedation. Physiotherapy and symptomatic treatment, i.e. analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs, were given to accelerate recovery and to restore the full function of the shoulder at the earliest.
