PHYSIOTHERAPEUTIC MANAGEMENT OF ADHESIVE CAPSULITIS: A REVIEW OF LITERATURE Hanuman Sigh * 1 , Mukesh Goyal 2 . * 1  Practitioner Physiotherapist, Rao Physiotherapy Clinic, Gurgaon, Haryana, India. 2 Associate Professor, Tantia Univesity, Rajasthan, India.

Adhesive Capsulitis has an incidence of 3–5% in the general population and up to 20% in those with diabetes. Methodology:    Lot   of   research   papers,   articles,   books,   etc.   was   referred   in   order   to   review   literature   about   physiotherapeutic   management   of   Adhesive Capsulitis. Conclusion:    For   many   years    much   of   the   literature   has   referred   to   frozen   shoulder   as   a   self-limiting   disease   but   the   duration   and   severity   may   vary   greatly. However   there   were   few   authors   who   have   suggested   that   this   condition   lasts   up   to   6   months.   But   over   a   period   of   time   many   authors   argued   this   old belief   and   found   that   the   condition   actual   remains   for   2   to   3   years.   During   last   40-50   years,   many   authors   have   conducted   various   studies   on   this   condition and   its   physiotherapeutic   management.   But   it   is   finally   concluded   that   exercise   is   undoubtedly   an   important   adjunct   to   treatment,   its   effectiveness   as   a   sole treatment for frozen shoulder has not been thoroughly evaluated.  KEY WORDS: Physiotherapeutic Management, Adhesive Capsulitis.
