What Do Others Have To Say About The Rotator Cuff Workshop?
"I’m a 63 year old male with an active lifestyle. Several months ago, I found myself unable to swim or paddle because I couldn’t make my right arm rotate up and forward. I was diagnosed with partial tears of my rotator cuff and biceps tendon. I was referred to an orthopedic surgeon to get them repaired. While waiting for a surgery date, I was prescribed physical therapy at Physical Therapy Specialties. The combination of physical therapy and daily exercises has made surgery unnecessary. I’m swimming, paddling, surfing and cycling again. I’m deeply grateful to Ida and the staff at PTS for helping me regain my full activity level without surgery."
"I’m an active 69 year old male, who loves golf and home landscaping. During a project I strained both of my shoulders while lifting heavy bags of gravel during a project. My physical therapist Mike, has a great sense of knowledge of the body’s muscles and tendons and I was surprised that a lot of my (front shoulder pain) could be from areas at my back. When you are through with P.T. from Mike, you now have a great wealth of knowledge about your physical issue and you also know that you have made a new friend."
"Here are a few words regarding my experience with PT for my shoulder. "My primary care doctor diagnosed my shoulder pain as coming from a bone spur and suggested that it was likely that surgery to remove it was the solution. However, if I wanted to try PT first, that would be a reasonable thing to do. I started PT with pain that came with virtually any movement of my arm. I was unable to raise my arm to take something off a shelf above shoulder level without unacceptable pain. PT provided me with knowledge of the anatomy that was causing my problem, provided progressive stretching and strengthening exercises plus hands-on therapy that, in about a month's time, saw me return to all my normal activities. I find it necessary to continue the stretching and strengthening exercises to maintain this progress, but I believe that choosing PT before surgery was the right decision.""
