Arthrographic Shoulder Distension for frozen shoulder
We now offer this much less invasive, yet very effective procedure than the alternative surgical option.
Richard Clarkson, Consultant Radiologist who performs this procedure says: “ have used this technique since arriving in Yeovil over 11 years ago and it has revolutionised treatment of frozen shoulders (adhesive capsulitis) locally and is now the first line of intervention.
The technique involves a three-pronged approach of: firstly distending the tight capsule with a combination of long acting local anaesthetic and air once dye has been injected and is shown using x-ray to be within the joint; secondly by then also injecting a dose of steroid into the joint; and thirdly through physio to maximise the effects and keep the released and often pain free joint moving.”
Previous audits performed by both Radiology and Physiotherapy departments have shown 9 out of 10 patients have significantly reduced or no pain and much better movement post treatment and further treatment is not usually required.”
