Collagenase in the Treatment of Adhesive Capsulitis (Frozen Shoulder)
The purpose of this study is to test collagenase injection therapy to dissolve adhesions causing frozen shoulder.
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Primary Purpose: Treatment
- Active elevation of the affected shoulder
- Active and passive shoulder motions in internal/external rotation, passive elevation, pain and function.
|Study Start Date:||January 2006|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||January 2007|
In a random, placebo controlled, double blind study, collagenase injection therapy will be investigated for it's ability to lyse the adhesions associated with the shoulder capsule in adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder).
Treatment success may obviate the need for extensive physical therapy and/or shoulder arthroscopy (surgery) to correct this condition and restore normal and pain free shoulder motion.
