Adhesive capsulitis is an absolutely treatable condition. The patient with this disorder may need to be prescribed analgesics for pain relief. Heat packs also help in relieving pain. It is recommended to consult a physical therapist who can plan an appropriate exercise regime for the affected joint. Joint stretching and strengthening exercises help in increasing the range of movement around the affected joint. In occasional instances, when these measures fail to accomplish a satisfactory result, surgical intervention may be considered. An arthroscopy may be performed or, alternatively, manipulation surgery under anaesthesia may be considered in which the doctor vigorously moves the arm of the patient at the affected shoulder joint, to break the capsule adhesions.
