Chronic Degenerative Shoulder Conditions
Adhesive Capsulitis (Frozen Shoulder)
This condition may respond to conservative treatment, or may require intervention23 (manipulation under anesthesia or arthroscopic lysis of adhesions.) LEOs who have demonstrated a successful return to full-training activities, should be able to return to unrestricted duty within 12 weeks after starting treatment. Return of full active range of motion may take up to 18-24 months.
Chronic Rotator Cuff Impingement/Chronic Tendinosis
LEOs with chronic impingement symptoms, loss of shoulder function, or pain that limits or prevents performance of essential job functions will require restrictions.
