I tore my left shoulder rotator cuff at work in September of 2015 and soon after saw an orthopedist. At that time my range of motion (ROM) was still very good but there was some pain that would not go away. He gave me a list of exercises to do and sent me home. Three months later I went to another orthopedist as the pain got much worse and I was losing ROM. This one was a surgeon and, of course, he suggested surgery for about $30K and more exercises. Finally, I saw a third orthopedist/specialist that diagnosed me with ‘frozen shoulder’. Now that I had a name for this condition I went on the Internet and did lots of research. I eventually found Dr. Oolo-Austin and the MCD Procedure on YouTube. After reading all the positive reviews, I arranged to fly to Toronto for the procedure on July 13, 2016.
It is now December 2016 and I can happily state that I am almost 100% recovered, having only mild pain at the boundaries of my ROM. It took some time and persistence with the prescribed exercises, especially on the external rotation and reaching behind my back, but that finally improved dramatically with my persistence. My beloved scuba diving is once again doable–hooray!
I highly recommend Dr. O and his ‘team’ at the World Frozen Shoulder Clinic. They get results and they guarantee their work. And their care and attention AFTER the procedure is the best I have ever encountered, bar none. They are the best solution for the dreadful ‘frozen shoulder’ I’ve found, and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks to all the staff at especially Dr. Allan Oolo-Austin!!!
