I came to therapy after a fall on concrete. I was having trouble moving my arms up and back. I could not lift over 8 pounds completely without pain. After therapy, with a lot of stretching my muscles, I have gained back my normal movements with no pain and can lift more than before.
Before physical therapy, I was not able to do much with my shoulder as the injury was to my dominant arm. I could only reach height halfway up to my waist and could do nothing overhead or behind my back. The pain level was severe with increased pain with any movement. Currently, post rotator cuff repair, I have full movement in every direction with no pain. I am lifting more than before surgery and can participate in normal activities with no pain.
I started out with shoulder pain and limited mobility. My pain was up to a 7-8/10. After beginning therapy, I saw progress within a week. I noticed strength and mobility increases very rapidly. My pain is now completely gone. I have also regained full usage of my arm and am stronger than I have been in years. I have had therapy for other issues, at other offices and this was by far my best experience! I am back to 100%.
