The Oolo-Austin MCD Procedure is a revolutionary non-surgical operation developed by world-renowned frozen shoulder expert Dr. Austin Oolo at The Frozen Shoulder Clinics. It has had 98% clinical success in restoring range of motion and functionality to frozen shoulders. 



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. When a patient develops frozen shoulder, the capsule surrounding the joint contracts. The patient’s body forms bands of scar tissue called adhesions. In addition, the soft sacs which cushion the joint called bursas may also stick together causing loss of ability to move the shoulder. 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.


•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.

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. 


Dr Leuthard trained with Dr Austin- Oolo, beginning in Australia 2010, Tallinn Estonia 2010, then assisted on courses in New Zealand and Australia until 2013. She then started teaching Trigenics courses in New Zealand in 2014 under the Trigenics ® Institute.

Dr Leuthard specifically started the MCD non-surgical Frozen Shoulder Procedure training in 2017 in Toronto, Canada which meant making several trips to the Frozen Shoulder Clinic and being personally trained by Dr Austin- Oolo. In April 2018 Linley was signed off as a registered MCD Frozen Shoulder Practitioner .

Dr Leuthard believes it is such a privilege to be able to care for people with Adhesive capsulitis and seeing the life changing results following the procedure it has made. Not only for the person who has adhesive capsulitis but also their families.

While the MCD Frozen Shoulder Practitioner is the one carrying out the non-surgical procedure, Dr Leuthard is aware it is a team approach and is grateful to have an experienced team around her.

New horizons are opening up as she has been asked to fill a position at the Frozen Shoulder clinic in Toronto, Canada performing MCD non-surgical procedures alternating with Dr Oolo.
