Regina is a softball player who hurt her shoulder. It hurt her to wash her hair, sleep, and she was unable to lift her shoulder above her head without having shooting pain. The pain would shock her if she lifted her shoulder above her head. It was very hard for her to throw and play softball which is what she loved doing.

She loved how the physical therapists altered the exercises to her needs. If something was hurting her the physical therapists would show her a less strenuous way to do that exercise or switch it with a different one. Regina wanted to be able to rotate her shoulder in a full circular motion and she is now able to after physical therapy and she has zero pain.

Automobile Accidents

Car accidents or any automobile accidents can be nerve-racking and in a blink of an eye, change your life. You may not be able to go on long hikes anymore or do outside work for as long. The pain now is a part of your new life and your new life with this pain is more limited than it has ever been.

Katelyn was in an accident where she injured her knee. She thought she could handle recovery by herself but soon realized she wasn’t sure where to begin and that she needed help. She loved how we catered to what she could and couldn’t do when first began.

She wanted her independence back and within weeks she didn’t need her walker anymore or her husband to help her out of the car. She wasn’t sure she was going to be able to get her independence back but she did.
