Ray’s Story

How long did you wait before coming to Preferred Physical Therapy?
Oh it was immediate. I had prior experience with the practice so I knew I wanted to come here.

What was and how bad was your shoulder problem prior to receiving treatment?
I had rotator cuff surgery with bicep tendon shredding and two holes in two different muscles. Everybody told me 18 months for rehab and basically my rehab here was 4 months.

What was your shoulder pain limiting you from doing throughout the day?
I couldn’t do any type of construction work, hold anything above my head but now everything is doing great.

What would you say to someone who was suffering from shoulder pain, but skeptical about physical therapy?
Come here. There are no issues and they’ll do great. Great practice, great people.

Out of all the things you enjoyed about coming to Preferred Physical Therapy, what did you enjoy the most?
The interaction with the employees and the owner of the company.

What was your goal and did we help you to achieve it?
I needed full range of motion in my arms so I could start doing country dancing and yes, it’s working perfectly.
