Brief Summary:

This study will compare shoulder range of motion assessment using the Kinect motion tracking system vs goniometer in patients with adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) undergoing ultrasound-guided capsular distention procedures (standard of care).

The investigators hypothesize that, for shoulder adhesive capsulitis, the Kinect Motion Analysis 2.0 system will provide reliable results in a shorter and more efficient amount of time in comparison to traditional goniometer methods.

Detailed Description:

The study will be a single-center, investigator-initiated protocol to assess the reliability of the Kinect Motion Analysis 2.0 Motion Tracking System for Range Of Motion (ROM) assessment in patients with Shoulder Adhesive Capsulitis undergoing ultrasound guided capsular distention procedures (standard of care for adhesive capsulitis). Secondarily, the study will describe the relationship between range of motion of the shoulder girdle in the four quadrants of normalized reachable workspace by the Kinect 2.0, PROMIS person-reported outcome scores for pain, pain interference and function (general mobility and upper extremity function), and VAS pain scores.

Study participants are anticipated to remain in the study for 12 weeks: an initial visit followed by 6- and 12-week follow up visits. Given the nature of scheduling appointments in medical clinics, 12 weeks is an approximation; the actual duration may occasionally be 1-2 weeks longer if needed to successfully complete the follow-up visit.

The investigators hypothesize that, for shoulder adhesive capsulitis, the Kinect Motion Analysis 2.0 system will provide reliable results in a shorter and more efficient amount of time in comparison to traditional goniometer methods.

Arm Intervention/treatment
measurement before and after capsular distention Other: Kinect motion tracking system
Kinect motion tracking system is used to measure shoulder range of motion compared to goniometric measurement.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. change in shoulder range of motion [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    measured in degrees (high number of degrees = better range of motion)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. PROMIS score - upper extremity [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) is a validated, 46-item, self-reported system to assess physical function and symptoms in patients with disorders of the limb. Range of possible values: 46-230. (Higher score indicates higher function and outcomes)

  2. DASH score [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    The Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) questionnaire is a 38-item questionnaire that looks at the ability of a patient to perform certain upper extremity activities. Range of possible values: 38-150. (Lower score indicates better function / less disability)

  3. VAS score [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    Visual analog scale is a validated, subjective measure for pain. Range of possible values: 0-10. (Higher score indicates more pain)
