It will help to reduce inflammation in your shoulder.

Read the Exercise Booklet

Please read this Post-op booklet (open pdf-file, last upload July, 2017).
These exercises are very important. In the first 24 hours you need to do these every hour, even waking up during night for best results.

Take your x-rays with you

Please take your x-rays (neck and shoulder) with you on disk or flash drive (or the originals on film).

Originals (digital or on film) allow us to see more details. If you have MRIs, you can take these with you too.
If some x-rays are missing, let us know in advance what x-rays are missing so we can prepare the referral note for our x-ray clinic.

What to Expect After the MCD

Have a support person

Consider having someone here with you.

It is highly recommended that you have someone with you–especially for the first night after the procedure. They can also support you during the procedure. Most importantly after the procedure, it is helpful to have someone who can assist you with the exercises and provide moral support.

Learn to breathe

Please watch this video and learn how to breathe and move during the procedure.

Breathing correctly during the procedure and while doing the exercises is very helpful.

What to wear?

Wear comfortable clothes for the procedure (no shoes). Dr Austin Oolo needs to have access to your shoulder and neck.

For women we suggest you wear either a sports bra or a sleeveless top (tank-top, strap-top etc) – for your own comfort.
