TRIGENICS® PRACTITIONERS AND CLINICS FOR TYPE 2 FROZEN SHOULDER
Dr. Austin-Oolo has also developed a groundbreaking procedure for another type of frozen shoulder called “Frozen Shoulder Impingement Syndrome,” “Shoulder Impingement Syndrome,” or sometimes simply type 2 frozen shoulder. It’s called the Trigenics® Shoulder Impingement Procedure (TSIP). He teaches TSIP to doctors and therapists worldwide. This special procedure is not a treatment for the less common adhesive capsulitis type of frozen shoulder.
Whereas the Trigenics® OAT procedure to treat adhesive capsulitis frozen shoulder involves the taking of medications, the TSIP for the impingement syndrome variety of frozen shoulder is performed without the use of medications. If you have the type of frozen shoulder due to capsular adhesions, Dr. Austin-Oolo’s OAT procedure is the only treatment that can alleviate symptoms and fix adhesive capsulitis in a single session.
If, however, you suffer from un-complicated frozen shoulder due to structural shoulder impingement, you can get treated with the TSIP procedure. The TSIP is performed by one of the many licensed Trigenics® practitioners who have been trained and certified through the Trigenics® Institute of Myoneural Medicine by Dr. Austin-Oolo.
HOW TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN ADHESIVE CAPSULTIS FROZEN SHOULDER (ACFS) AND FROZEN SHOULDER IMPINGEMENT SYNDROME (FSIS)
With adhesive capsulitis frozen shoulder, all ranges of motion will be severely restricted—especially side raising (abduction), arm up behind your back (internal rotation) and the “I surrender” position (external rotation). Internal and external rotations are still possible by patients suffering from frozen shoulder impingement syndrome. With adhesive capsulitis, patients are often unable to wash their hair, do up their bra, or even simply put their affected hand on their hip. Both types of frozen shoulder can cause pain at night but with adhesive capsulitis, the pain can be excruciating and debilitating. With impingement syndrome the patient will often still be able to raise their arm sideways without body or shoulder tilt between 90-120 degrees. Adhesive capsulitis sufferers are usually unable to raise their arm in any manner above 90 degrees without body tilt. Most impingement syndrome sufferers still have most of their other shoulder movement capabilities with pain only in some ranges at end point. Some impingement syndrome sufferers do not have limitations on side raises and only experience pain when they reach all the way up and back or partially up and back.
