The Trigenics® OAT Procedure for Frozen Shoulder
The Trigenics® OAT procedure for curing adhesive capsulitis frozen shoulder is a Non-Surgical Operation which is also medically referred to as the OAT “Manual Capsular Dissection” procedure in research articles (OAT-MCD). It can also be referred to as the Trigenics® Frozen Shoulder Recovery Procedure or the Trigenics® OAT nonsurgical operation.
An initial examination is performed prior to the OAT procedure which involves a history-taking component and a physical examination component. Patients are asked several questions pertaining to their frozen shoulder so that their specific case can be better understood. A Trigenics® physical examination is then performed to determine the severity of the patient’s frozen shoulder. Pre-OAT range of motion testing of the shoulder is performed so that it can be compared to post-OAT results. Trigenics® muscle length and strength testing is used to determine the specific structures that are involved with the patient’s frozen shoulder. Once the physical examination is complete, the first part of the OAT procedure can begin.
The Trigenics® OAT procedure has two components, a muscular component and a capsular component. The first component performed is the muscular component which uses Trigenics® lengthening and strengthening procedures to target the soft tissues that were assessed during the physical examination. Upon completion of the muscular component, the patient’s shoulder range of motion usually immediately increases by at least 10-20 degrees. (Often much to their surprise, this will be, for most patients, more increase in shoulder range of motion than they have been able to attain with months of other therapies.)
The patients are then injected with a local anesthetic into the shoulder joint prior to the OAT procedure to address the capsular component of the condition. Patients are also given oral medication to help them relax and to reduce pain during the procedure. Once the medications reach their peak effect, the capsular component begins. The performing doctor will be assisted by 2 or 3 assistants during the OAT procedure to open the shoulder joint. Following the operation, the patient will normally experience an immediate significant return of functional movement in the shoulder. (see our videos). The novel Trigenics® OAT procedure involves 3 specialized joint-capsule separation procedures as well as cursory capsular separation protocols using specialized Trigenics® multi-probe instruments designed by Dr. Oolo-Austin. The OAT procedure is, in reality, a very specifically targeted and measured manual non-surgical dissection. The separation of the restricting scar tissue is performed in such a way as to only stress the offensive scar tissue and not the healthy tissues, capsule, bones, or nerves. The entire process requires interactive patient participation in a way which dampens the neurological motor input to the muscles which reflexively contract or go into spasm when the adhesed and frozen shoulder joint reaches its virtual end range. Specialized Trigenics® Myoneural procedures and recovery exercises are simultaneously applied by the physician conducting the procedure in order to provide immediate shoulder mobilization in planes of motion found to be safe. Following the OAT procedure to address the capsular component of condition, patients are immediately able to put their arm up beside their head and behind their back.
The final part of the procedure involves the patient training to do the post-op Trigenics® myo-neural exercises which are to be done in accordance with the exercise booklet they receive. Family members or friends that come with the patient are also trained in helping the patient with the exercises to ensure that they are done accurately.
The entire curative process, including the OAT procedure itself with pre-op preparation and post-op rehabilitation, takes place over 2-3 hours. The actual final opening of the joint, however, at exactly the right moment during the operation, literally only takes a matter of moments to achieve permanent results in most cases.
The Trigenics® OAT Procedure was invented and developed over time by Dr. Allan Oolo-Austin to cure Adhesive Capsulitis Frozen Shoulder. The Trigenics® OAT Procedure was formally introduced to the medical community in a pilot study by Dr. Maxim Bakhtadze, MD, PhD and Dr. Allan Oolo-Austin, DO, DC. The paper was published in Russia in the Russian Journal of Manual Medicine in 2012. The study showed how, after nearly 10 years of clinical success in the treatment of hundreds of patients worldwide, there were no reported failures or complications. The Trigenics® OAT Procedure for frozen shoulder is now regarded as the world’s safest and most successful curative procedure for Adhesive Capsulitis Frozen Shoulder.
