3. differentiate adhesive capsulitis from other painful shoulder conditions using symptom presentation, classification of the disorder, and functional outcome tools in the diagnostic process
4. describe evidence-based physical therapy examination and diagnosis for adhesive capsulitis
5. identify physical therapy interventions supported by current best evidence to ensure optimal patient outcomes at various stages of the disorder
6. summarize current evidence-based medical management adjuncts or alternatives to physical therapy in the presence of adhesive capsulitis.
