In arthritis of the shoulder, three stages can be considered. They have a direct relationship to the
degree of capsular irritation (severity of the arthritis).
The staging is done on four criteria:
Remark: A clear distinction must be made between the degree of limitation of range and the stage. Limitation of movement and stage do not always fit. It is possible to find a pronounced degree of limited range in stage I or a subtle degree of limitation in stage III. It should therefore be emphasized that the degree of inflammation (staging) is only done on the four clinical criteria.
Stage I :Minor degree of inflammation:
|No pain below the elbow||No nocturnal pain||Normal end-feel||No pain at rest|
Stage II :Moderate degree of irritation: Intermediate Stage
Stadium III :Severe irritation
|Pain below the elbow||Nocturnal pain||Spastic endfeel||Pain at rest|
