I am from Toronto, Ontario. I found the World Frozen Shoulder Clinic on-line and was pleased to see that they have a clinic in Toronto. I was diagnosed with Frozen Shoulder in January 2016 and the clinic confirmed this diagnosis viewing photos of me trying to put with arm into 3 different positions (above my head, behind my back and in the “I solemnly vow” position.)
I had the condition for about 5 months before I had the procedure performed on March 1, 2016. I didn’t have a tremendous amount of pain (only with certain movements.) It was the lack of mobility that was really challenging for me. It was hard to put on a coat or even blow dry my hair. I briefly tried physiotherapy treatments in January with no improvement; my shoulder kept freezing more.
Of course, I had my reservations about MCD Procedure but the videos and testimonials on the website were convincing. Invaluable for me was reading on-line Dr. Oolo-Austin’s theory about what causes Frozen Shoulder–nerve impingement in the neck, hormonal imbalance and trauma to the shoulder. I had all of these. Nobody I talked to had heard of the MCD Procedure but I knew I had to try it. The alternatives were not great.
The practitioners at the clinic are fantastic and well as the front office staff who administer the decompression and laser treatments. Chiropractic and acupuncture treatments at the clinic as well as cervical decompression at the clinic have helped very much. I was glad I was able to continue care at the Toronto clinic. I also received regular laser treatments on my shoulder. I am almost 5-months post-procedure and am finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Full shoulder mobility and arm/shoulder strength are returning.
