Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to examine the efficacy of dynamic splinting in reducing contracture following diagnosis of adhesive capsulitis.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Adhesive Capsulitis Device: Dynasplint Other: Standard of Care Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This randomized controlled trial will explore the efficacy of dynamic splinting in conjunction with the current standard of care as compared to standard of care alone.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 5 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Adhesive Capsulitis and Dynamic Splinting: a Randomized, Controlled Trial
Study Start Date : January 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 2015

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Dynasplint
Along with standard manual physical therapy, patients will have a stretching device (Dynasplint) used in rehabilitation to regain ROM in stiff joints. Patients will use this device 20-30 minutes 2 times per day at home.
Device: Dynasplint
Dynamic splinting utilizes the protocols of Low-Load Prolonged Stretch (LLPS) with calibrated adjustable tension to increase Total End Range Time (TERT)to reduce contracture. The Dynasplint or "Experimental" group will add this therapy to their standard of care regimen
Other Name: Shoulder

Other: Standard of Care
The current Standard of Care for treating this condition includes corticosteroid injections and physical therapy.

Patient's in the Physical Therapy Group will have the standard manual treatments during their usual physical therapy visits with no additional intervention
Other: Standard of Care
The current Standard of Care for treating this condition includes corticosteroid injections and physical therapy.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Efficacy [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    The primary measures are full arc ROM and changes in the Disabilities of the Arm Shoulder Hand pain survey (DASH).
