I’m a retired Computer Technician and reside in Sacramento, California. I have suffered from a frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) for about 2 years. I’ve tried everything that I could possibly think of to remedy the problem from heating pads, cold packs, sleeping on different beds, adding support systems to the bed, raising the level of the head of the bed, Electronic Tens Therapy Stimulation unit and Physical Therapy. As time went on, my frozen shoulder became worse, I experienced less mobility and eventually excruciating pains in the upper arm that would wake me up at all hours of the night. Along with this I was taking large dosages of Motrin and Tylenol to get rid of the pain but did very little with curing the problem, seeing no cure in sight. I had seen an orthopedic doctor who said that this type of problem could take months to years to cure itself or may never ever get better. Surgery was an option but best prognosis would be 4 to 6 months of recovery and I may never fully regain use of my arm. The doctor recommended Physical Therapy which I tried for about 2 months but all it did was may the pain worse and did nothing to cure the problems. I was feeling that it was deteriorating and taking away my life one a day at a time. I’m normally a very active person and are constantly busy working with my hands building and making things in my workshop. But because of the frozen shoulder, I was beginning to lose interest in doing any of the things that I enjoyed because of this pain and not having full mobility with my shoulder and arm.
I began to do some research with trying to find a cure for the frozen shoulder. I stumbled across a YouTube video of Dr. Oolo-Austin’s. The more research I did on his MCD Procedure, the more videos I saw of people being cured of this problem in just a short amount of time. I began to be convinced this was my last hope for remedying this shoulder issue. When I discussed the MCD Procedure with my orthopedic doctor, he said that he was wary of this procedure and cautioned me in my choice. In March 2016, I made the choice to have the MCD Procedure done. It has been a little over 2 weeks now since the procedure and I am seeing remarkable success in my shoulder and arm. I now have more mobility in my arm and shoulder than I ever had. Many other things have come out of having this procedure done other than the mobility. Little things such as no sharp pain down the arm, being able to sleep through the night, and being able to turn my head more to the right than before. But the most improved thing has been a problem that I’ve suffered with in the last few years. A neck pain which would lead to migraine type headaches. In the past and before the procedure, I was always having a problem with working on something where I would be looking in an upward manner, such as looking at a computer monitor for a long period of time. I would begin to have a pain in the back of the neck and then it would progress around to the front of my forehead. I would end up having a severe headache almost to the point of a migraine. I would also get this sometimes while sitting on the couch watching television or even in the middle of the night while sleeping on my back and the back of my head positioned flat on the pillow. I would end up taking a high dosage of Motrin and within about an hour, the headache would eventually go away. After having the MCD Procedure done, I have not had one of these headaches since. Even now as I speak, I have been on the computer most of the day today. By now I should have had one of those headaches. My thought is that the frozen shoulder was somehow pinching or pushing against something possibly in my neck that would eventually generate into the severe headache. I am SO relieved that I don’t have those anymore!!
I still have several weeks of stretching exercises to perform before I’m completely recovered from the procedure. I’m not out of the woods yet with a full recovery but I can honestly say that I would have not progressed this far and recovered so quickly had I continued in the path with the physical therapy. I’m able to do things now that I would have never dreamt of doing in this short of a time period after having work done on my frozen shoulder. This procedure is truly the way to rid the frozen shoulder problems. I highly recommend if you have been experiencing frozen shoulder symptoms, that you look into having this procedure done and get your life back to where it should be. There is light at the end of the tunnel and by having this treatment performed you will see things change for the better and much sooner than any other methods. That light is getting brighter every day for me!
