Patient Results:Shoulder

  • At Full Potential, after a knee replacement, I worked with Dr. Carrie Metevia and Joel Flenniken. Carrie and Joel provided me with all the “why” of what the therapy, exercises and continued homework strategies would accomplish. The continued exercises provided the strength to recover what surgery had undone. And after it was done, I could hop. I couldn’t before knee replacement, and now the hop is back. Every person I met – from desk to table, was a positive encounter. It was a good journey back.

  • I had a painful shoulder and no strength. Now, I am much better and able to reduce pain with exercises. Also, the relief in my back has been life changing.  Thanks!

  • I had severe pain in my shoulder going into head. Now, headache is gone and significant improvement in pain.  I can do a lot more now since I came to physical therapy.

  • I had a fractured humorous bone in a sling following surgery to insert a plate. Therapy has been extremely helpful. I learned to use my arm again. I will continue with the therapy at home. I couldn’t have done this without the wonderful therapist.

  • I had a sharp pain with certain movements and limited arm lifting/reaching and dull pain at times in upper arm. Now, I have tremendous improvement with movements and no or much less pain.

  • I had pretty constant shoulder/arm pain and could not sleep on my side. Sleep was interrupted often due to pain. Now, my shoulder pain is much improved. I’m sleeping through the night without pain. If I don’t put pressure/weight on the area, I’m comfortable!  Thanks!

  • My upper right shoulder/neck and lower back was stiff and in pain, as well as my knee.  Now, my right shoulder zero pain, minimal stiffness in back. I have found my abdominal muscles! It feels great to be able to stabilize my core.

  • I was in constant pain in my left shoulder; experienced sharp pain when raising arm; had difficulty with dressing. Now, I am now able to do almost everything with little or no pain. I have full range of motion again.

    Jacob N.

  • I had torn my rotator cuff and had limited movement after surgery.  Now, I have both motion and strength back after therapy.  Full Potential worked carefully with my shoulder and taught me exercises for home.  With a few exceptions I’m as good as new!  Thanks, you made it fun and successful.

  • Before Physical Therapy I couldn”t lift or do much with my left shoulder due to pain. After therapy, the pain has decreased and I barely have limitations.
