Abstract

Background & Purpose: Adhesive capsulitis is a commonly seen diagnosis in physical therapy practice. A newer diagnosis known as SIRVA presents similarly to adhesive capsulitis or muscle tear and presents itself after an injection. The purpose of this study is to present the findings associated with a patient with SIRVA and the course of action taken by the physical therapy team for her plan of care. The thought process of the physical therapy team to present a physical therapy diagnosis that is not consistent with adhesive capsulitis
Case Description: This is a retrospective case report that follows a 60-year-old female that presents with a primary diagnosis of adhesive capsulitis. She had a significant prior medical history of anxiety and MS.
Outcomes: The patient was seen for an MRI after her initial evaluation for physical therapy. The findings were significant for major trauma to the shoulder musculature and supporting structures and was referred to an orthopedic doctor for surgical interventions.
Discussion: Physical therapists are an important members of the health care team and can help patients determine if they will benefit from physical therapy or if other interventions will be needed.
