Abstract

The results of this block in various painful situations of the shoulder region suggest the importance of subscapularis muscle in the etiology of the frozen shoulder. Using this technique, we could demonstrate that a subscapular nerve block and subscapularis trigger points infiltration have both a diagnostic and therapeutic value for the treatment of the frozen shoulder.
