Manipulation under anaesthetic (MUA) / Arthroscopic Capsular Release
- Primary and secondary frozen shoulder
- Post-traumatic stiff shoulder.
- Usually performed under combined general anaesthetic & Interscalene Block
- Full ROM is usually achieved operatively unless otherwise stated. The aim of rehab is to retain that motion. Therefore early and active rehab is started as soon as possible post-operatively.
