Adhesive capsulitis is defined as an idiopathic condition of shoulder joint, characterized by spontaneous onset of pain, stiffness & restriction of range of motion at the shoulder joint. 1 The prevalence found to be 3.06%. It has insidious onset with difficulty in sleeping on the affected side and in daily routine activities. Platelet rich plasma has been recently been an aspect of significant importance of interest 2–5 in the orthopaedic community, to extract the facts regarding basic science of in vitro effects of PRP. 6 As it is autologous content, so carries minimal risk for the patient. In study, we evaluate the efficacy of single intra-articular platelet rich plasma injection in the patients with adhesive capsulitis. 7 The study was conducted in thirty patients having established adhesive capsulitis of shoulder joint allocated for intra-articular injection of platelet rich plasma in the shoulder through anterior approach, All the concerned patients assessed pre-operative and post-operative period by using DASH, VAS and ROM at regular intervals. The study resulted in statistically significant improvement in pain in terms of DASH, VAS and functional ROM in patients with adhesive capsulitis.
