dc.description.abstract Frozen shoulder commonly affects people aged around 50 years and is associated with substantial levels of shoulder pain and stiffness that may last for many years. Many people with frozen shoulder report that simple activities, such as dressing, and washing or drying their hair, become almost impossible. The condition may adversely affect the ability to work and frequently causes severe interruptions to sleep. The reasons why up to 5% of the population develop frozen shoulder are unknown. Many treatments, often lacking sound research evidence, have been recommended. Inappropriate treatment may not resolve the symptoms, may be associated with unnecessary expense, and may even cause harm. We have updated a review of the available literature to synthesize the findings of the available research so that we can make recommendations for the best current treatment alternatives to help people with frozen shoulder and for future research en_US
