Frozen Shoulder Medical Treatment Breakthrough
Adhesive Capsulitis, also referred to as “arthrofibrosis” is commonly known as “frozen shoulder”. It is one of the most common causes of severe shoulder pain–causing relentless pain and disabling immobility to close to 1 out of every 20 people. This is a significantly large percentage of the population but, surprisingly, it is still rarely mentioned in the media so most people have never heard of it. Ironically, once a person has it, it seems to them that just about everyone they speak to knows someone who has had it.
For centuries, researchers have attempted to discover and define the actual pathology and diagnosis of frozen shoulder but no one has ever been able to. But in 2003 Dr. Austin Oolo pioneered a new novel concept and non-surgical operative procedure which has proven to provide immediate curative relief to the pain and immobilizing dysfunction of frozen shoulder. It is safe to say that Dr. Austin Oolo’s OAT procedure is a modern day medical breakthrough as no one before him in history has been able to quickly cure this terrible disease. Even most slow-term, minimally effectual treatments for frozen shoulder (physiotherapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, etc.) are still indistinct in terms of effectiveness. And all purported quick-fix, fast-term solutions, such as surgery or manipulation under general anesthetic, are very risky. They frequently cause damage and/or are not usually effective.
Stages of Adhesive Capsulitis Frozen Shoulder: A Physiological Progression
The shoulder capsule swells excessively, thickens, and grows hard fibrous tissue bands across it to form bridging restrictive adhesions. These prevent almost all ranges of shoulder joint and arm movement. With all the internal pressure and tissue / joint compaction, the shoulder becomes incredibly painful and almost totally incapable of movement. This usually occurs over three commonly cited stages;
Immense unbearable pain (especially at night) with rapidly advancing loss of motion.
Painful symptoms lessen but immobility remains for 4-6 months with impossibility or significant difficulties in performing normal daily activities.
Stiffness very gradually begins to improve. Partial to complete recovery becomes possible within 1-3 years but over 60% never regain complete end-range movement and 1 in 15 patients never recover.
Medical breakthrough Treatment for the Adhesive Capsulitis type of Frozen Shoulder: The MCD (Manual Capsular Dissection) Procedure
Most of the world’s medical professionals are aware of the Adhesive Capsulitis Frozen Shoulder condition. But none of them seem to have any idea as to the root cause or how to cure this terrible, immobilizing, and life-draining disease. Most of the conventional treatments for frozen shoulder are based on very limited evidence of dubious effectiveness. The most-utilized treatments include physiotherapy, hydro-dilation, intra-articular steroid injections, and arthroscopic capsular-cutting release surgery. Although still commonly prescribed and practiced, physiotherapy is actually contra-indicated for adhesive capsulitis frozen shoulder as it is cited in research to either not help or to make the condition worse.
The unbearable pain and immobilizing disability caused by frozen shoulder keeps the patient in a depressive, partially disabled state with a significantly inferior quality of life.
The cure to this severe, disabling, and depressing disease was found after 25 years of clinical research and analysis of adhesive capsulitis frozen shoulder by Dr. Oolo-Austin. In 2003, he discovered and pioneered a totally innovative, new, curative treatment process that enables immediate recovery from frozen shoulder. Known as the MCD Procedure, the medical innovation is actually a complex, manual, non-surgical operation designed to effectively and safely separate the majority of the restrictive scar-like bands of tissue which cause the frozen-like immobility and pain of the condition.
The entire MCD process, including the operation, takes between 2-3 hours. It is totally non-surgical. No general anesthesia is required. The operation does involve medication in the form of shoulder anesthetic and mild steroid injections with oral analgesics and sedatives, however. The MCD Procedure is a single-treatment visit process. It involves very specific mobilization and dissection of adhesive scar tissue by way of careful specific isolation and focused separation. This is perfumed following a neurological disabling of reflexive muscle contractions using Dr. Oolo-Austin’s advanced neuro-muscular treatments.
What is quite incredible and unique is that, immediately following the MCD Procedure, patients are usually able to lift their arms up above their heads and return to their normal daily life activities within a few days. Also incredible is that there have been no side effects or complications recorded in the more than 15 years that the MCD Procedure has been performed. The MCD Procedure for adhesive capsulitis frozen shoulder immediately gives patients their arm movement and lives back. These kinds of results have never been recorded before. The procedure is a modern-day medical breakthrough.
