      Hello DN Cohorts,
      I have a patient who has been receiving treatment at another clinic for 3 months post-operative labral repair, but it still lacks greater than half normal external and internal rotation, and abduction ranges of motion. The therapist believes she is experiencing the freezing stages of Adhesive Capsulitis and she has decided to seek my help. Other than the recommended points we learned in the foundational course, can you direct me to more information/guidelines, protocols/locations for effective Glenohumeral and surrounding tissue release, etc. using DN/cupping combination?
      Thank you,
      Alex

      Hey Alex,

      The advanced course some more specific axillary points, lats, teres, etc are covered there which can be useful. I have had great success with the points used in the foundation course. Hit the pec and lateral pectoral area well, a few deltoid (anterior and posterior) as well as suprascapular, subscap, and supraspinatus. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Continue with your normal manual therapy on top of that should work well .
