There are three stages to the condition: the painful stage (3 to 8 months long); the adhesive stage (4 to 6 months long); and the recovery stage (1 to 3 months long). Sometimes popularly called by the misleading term frozen shoulder.

Although the precise parthenogenesis of adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder (frozen shoulder) is unclear, fibrotic, inflammatory, and chondrogenic processes of the joint capsule are described as potential pathomechanisms [1,2].
Despues de la extraccion de la placa, la tasa de refractura esta entre el 0 y 8% y la capsulitis adhesiva del hombro ha sido reportada en el 0 al 7% de los casos (2, 35).
A Frozen shoulder, or adhesive capsulitis, is a chronic inflammation of the tissue around the shoulder joint--it can seem like arthritis because the symptoms (pain and restricted mobility) are similar to arthritis.
Objective: The aim of this work was to evaluate the effectiveness of exercise with manual therapy and exercise alone in adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder.
The clinician is advised to consider differential diagnoses such as capsulitis by pressing under the metatarsal heads which would not usually elicit pain in a Neuroma, similarly, pain on the dorsal aspect of the metatarsals may be suggestive of a stress fracture, not usually a Neuroma.
