What is a frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis ) ?

Frozen shoulder, or adhesive capsulitis, is a condition that causes severe, painful restriction of motion in the shoulder joint. Frozen shoulder causes the capsule surrounding the shoulder joint to contract and form scar tissue which prevents the shoulder bone from being able to move in the socket. The shoulder literally seems to be “frozen” which is why it is called frozen shoulder.
Frozen shoulder causes the capsule surrounding the shoulder joint to contract and form scar tissue which prevents the shoulder bone from being able to move in the socket. The contraction of the capsule and the formation of the adhesions cause the frozen shoulder to become stiff and cause movement to become extremely painful. The shoulder literally becomes “frozen” which is why the condition has been given the name frozen shoulder. The formal medical term for the Frozen Shoulder is Adhesive Capsulitis, and this disorder has a range of symptoms, though progressive lack of mobility and increased pain are reported in nearly every case. There are many possible causes for the onset of this ailment, but typically it occurs between the ages of 40-60 years.


These are some of the most commonly reported Frozen Shoulder Symptoms:

  • Shoulder pain; usually a dull, aching pain.
  • Pain when trying to sleep on the affected shoulder
  • Limited movement of the shoulder with severe pain if it is moved beyond a certain range.
  • Difficulty with activities such as brushing teeth/hair or putting on shirts/bras.

Frozen Shoulder self diagnosis test!

The human shoulder is extremely specialized and the most complicated joint of the body. The shoulder joint normally allows for a larger range motion than any other joint in the body. Frozen Shoulder is a condition that causes severe painful restriction of motion in the shoulder joint. Loss of ability to move the shoulder may occur when bands of scar tissue, called adhesions, form. In addition, the soft sacs which cushion the joint, called bursas, may stick together. The shoulder joint becomes stiff and scarred which creates havoc on the ball and socket joint. The ball is actually the top of your arm bone (the humeral head), and the socket is part of your shoulder blade (the glenoid fossa). Surrounding this ball-and-socket joint is a capsule of tissue that envelops the joint, and that is precisely where the damage occurs.


Our Method Ensures a Fast Return to Functional Ability for Frozen Shoulder Sufferers. The Oolo-Austin Trigenics® Procedure (MCD Procedure) is a revolutionary non-surgical operation developed by world-renowned frozen shoulder expert Dr. Austin Oolo at the Trigenics® Frozen Shoulder Clinics. It has had 98% clinical success in restoring range of motion and functionality to frozen shoulders.

Our method involves Dr. Austin Oolo isolating the adhesive tissue inside and outside the shoulder capsule and separating it using extremely specific patient movements in conjunction with very specific mobilization procedures. Unlike orthoscopic surgery, the MCD Procedure is completely non-invasive and does not involve cutting into the shoulder. It is not done in an operating room with general anesthetic like invasive surgery or manipulation under anesthesia.

The MCD Procedure is completed in about an hour with the actual separation of the joint adhesions taking mere seconds. It is literally over before you know it. You will walk in unable to move your shoulder and walk out almost fully functional. (Some rehab exercises and Trigenics® treatments are usually needed post-op to neurologically re-educate the unused shoulder muscles) You will walk into our clinic unable to put your coat on yourself, unable to put your hand on your hip, unable to wash your hair with the affected arm, and often unable to work. After the frozen shoulder treatment procedure, these everyday activities will be fully returned to you within days or, at most, weeks.

It can be very frustrating visiting doctor after doctor, and therapist after therapist who can’t seem to pinpoint the exact cause of your lack of mobility and shoulder pain. Even if they do correctly diagnose frozen shoulder, they certainly cannot cure it for you. Once a proper diagnosis finally has been made, often the only proposed solution is surgery followed by a long and painful recovery and rehabilitation process. Surgery, whether it helps or not, still requires two months of heavy post-op physiotherapy sessions in an attempt to heal the damage inflicted to the tissues from the surgery itself. No matter which way you look at it, cutting open your body should always be your last resort.

The frozen shoulder treatment procedure has been incredibly successful and is the first of its kind in the world. The Trigenics® MCD Procedure is performed with the patient being fully conscious and interactively participating to ensure than no damage occurs to the joint or surrounding tissues. Every person is unique, and this is one medical procedure that truly takes this fact into account.
