The McKenzie Method of mechanical diagnosis and therapy (MDT) is supported in the literature as a valid and reliable approach to spine injuries. It can also be applied to the peripheral joints, but has not been explored through research to the same extent. A previous case series detailed the use of MDT in the shoulder; however, the application of MDT in the treatment of adhesive capsulitis has not been previously reported in the literature. The purpose of this report is to demonstrate the assessment, intervention, and clinical outcomes of a patient diagnosed with adhesive capsulitis, who was classified as having a shoulder derangement using MDT methodology.
