ROTATORELIEVER in the South Bend Tribune

For Notre Dame grad, pain was mother of invention

The idea came to Dr. Michael Carroll in the middle of the night as he was tossing and turning in pain. His right shoulder was flaring up — again — and it was costing him another good night's rest.

In an attempt to ease some of the pain, Carroll, using his left hand, grabbed his right wrist and pulled it down along his side, which stretched his arm and helped with the pain.

He then used an elastic bandage on his wrist and tied weights on the other end to keep his arm in that position. It allowed him to comfortably fall back asleep.

"I slept in that crazy contraption all night," said Carroll, a 1991 Notre Dame graduate who started his own family doctor practice, Creekside Clinic, in Traverse City, Mich., 10 years ago.

Mr Williams,
Yes. Like most shoulder problems, frozen shoulder is at least partly due to rotator cuff problems.  Our product will rehab your rotator cuff.  The nighttime predominance of the pain also suggests that it is due to rotator cuff.  

Good luck.
Dr. C
