Prevention[edit]

I reverted from Jlittlet's edit because therapy does not mean physical therapy exclusively. Occupational therapists frequently work with clients with frozen shoulder. --aishel 19:57, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

The quality of this article[edit]

The whole article has no references, is written in very plain language and gives very poor evidence based directions. The management section is extremely poor in terms of quality, with very few references of no relevance whatsoever and totally ignoring national health associations guidelines. I believe the article should be deleted to avoid mis-information to patients. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Matteopeo (talkcontribs) 11:40, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Having adhesive capsulitis personally, I found this article extremely accurate. It was amost as if whoever wrote it had lived with this problem as I have for sometime. I am encouraged by this article and it is certainly more accurate and informationaly then anything you will get from a doctor. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dr.drayham (talkcontribs) 23:29, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Plug for Book[edit]

I removed this paragraph:

A helpful resource is the book "Pain Free" by Pete Egoscue, which includes a chapter on shoulders and explains how problems with shoulders develop, and most importantly provides a series of positions which offer pain relief and healing.

The editor (user:69.143.182.180) who added this on 26 April 2009 stated in the Edit summary, "(Added that the most helpful time to provide physical therapy is during the thawing stage and recommended "Pain Free" by Pete Egoscue, a book I found extremely helpful in recovering from this)"

It may be the case that this user found the book helpful, but one person's individual experience is not appropriate as content in a Wikipedia article. See NOT#Wikipedia_is_not_a_publisher_of_original_thought, in particular, "Wikipedia is supposed to compile human knowledge. It is not a vehicle to make personal opinions become part of human knowledge." --Crunch (talk) 01:24, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Management[edit]

I hesitate to edit a medical article, but the Management section looks too prescriptive. I had this condition recently and the treatment was immediate surgery, without any other interventions beforehand (UK). Cyclopaedic (talk) 13:04, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

There need to be additional referrences in the Management section of this article! There are significantly more references on the management of this condition than mentioned in this article. The reference given in the osteopathic management of this condition is by no means a medical reference, rather a footnote by a final year osteopath student advocating a techinique that has not been tested in any randomised control trials —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.244.167.68 (talk) 12:45, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

New Sections[edit]

It seems to me that this article needs to be subdivided better and have missing components added. As a minimum, there needs to be a pathogenesis section and a causes section of some kind. justin.kirkham (talk) 15:45, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Risk factors of "frozen shoulder"[edit]

I currently have frozen shoulder and I was stopped in my tracks when I read that it can lead to heart disease, stroke, etc. After reading some other entries about the topic elsewhere, I realised that what the author of the Wiki article probably meant was that those serious conditions can lead to frozen shoulder, not the other way around. That said, I'm no expert, and what is written in the Wiki article may very well be true. Mind you, my shoulder is currently being treated by a couple of specialists and they've never once mentioned such risks. Could this be a case of, as one person noted, the Wiki article being confused and poorly referenced?

Differentiation with shoulder impingement[edit]

One thing I would like to see is someone explain the differences between frozen shoulder and shoulder impingement. Specifically how to diagnose which one is which based on pain, range of motion etc. I have one of the 2, not sure which, and MRI hasnt shown much of anything.dileep.katta (talk) 15:45, 19 Jun 2011 (EST) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.86.137.42 (talk)

Removal of uncited advice in Management - still needs a lot of work[edit]

Came here from OTRS-triggered notice at WPMED, removed a fair amount of inadequately-sourced and unencyclopedic content. That section could be expanded again if refactored and properly cited. -- Scray (talk) 14:55, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Acupuncture[edit]

My father had this a number of years ago and he found acupuncture extremely helpful. If this is common, some mention of the technique might be worthwhile. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.38.56.124 (talk) 13:04, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
