I suffered a shoulder injury while lifting weights. I attempted to work through it and experienced a great deal of pain and stiffness to the entire shoulder, upper back and neck area. I also play golf frequently which aggravated the pain even further. After a few months of this condition worsening I was examined by a pain management doctor and an orthopedic surgeon, They were not able to determine the exact cause of the pain and I was referred to a physical therapist for treatment. I also received two cortisone shots to the shoulder and neck with negative results. After sessions of physical therapy the condition did not improve, so I stopped. The pain continued and the entire shoulder and arm was weak and I started experiencing numbness from my shoulder down to my arm.
After a couple of months inactivity and the condition not improving I read an article about you and the technique which you teach called Graston Technique. I decided to set up an appointment being that nothing else I tried seemed to help. After several visits to you, I noticed some improvement and attempted to start lifting weights again being very careful to use light weights. I continued the treatment for several months and the results were tremendous, the pain was totally gone and I regained the strength that I lost and was able to continue my normal activities.
In addition, on several occasions you treated me with Kinesio Tape which you explained would give support to the area and promote healing. It has been several months, and other than some occasion stiffness my shoulder and back feel 100% back to normal. I have since recommended friends to you for treatment. I would like to thank you and your entire staff for the care I received.
