Abstract: In this study we aim to evaluate clinical evaluation of outcome of treatment of frozen shoulder by hydraulic distension under local anesthesia with steroid. A rapid, immediate result and cost effectiveness of hydraulic distension technique was also evaluated is this study. There were 22 shoulders with good results after distension and 26 good results at follow up. In total there were 19 shoulders with excellent results at follow up, as compare to 2 shoulders with excellent results after distension. Patients who had detoriated revealed that they had failed to do regular prescribed home exercises. In contrast patients who had gained excellent results had their regular home exercises as prescribed to them. Hydraulic distension is a safe, reliable, cost effective modality in treating the chronically distressing painful condition of frozen shoulder.
