This month's success story comes from a nearby Danbury resident. Jane, like many people, was very active when she came to us towards the end of summer last year.
She was enjoying the warm weather by kayaking, but then felt a dull pain in her shoulder the next day
Unable to continue with her daily activities without this constant feeling of pain and soreness she decided to get help.
Jane started physical therapy with us on September 20th 2018 to treat her right shoulder impingement. Unfortunately, Jane's insurance had a very high deductible that would have required her to make expensive out of pocket payments for every visit, but we were happy to work with Jane to find a payment option that worked for her.
Determined to get back to working, exercising, and sleeping through the night without feeling discomfort, Jane prioritized coming to PT three times a week.
After her first assessment and seeing how limited her range of motion was we guided her through personalized exercises and stood with her every step of the way. Jane was serious about her recovery, using bands and home exercises as prescribed by her physical therapist to help speed up the healing process.
In less than a month she was making tremendous progress and felt stronger everyday, reducing her visits to two times a week. As we approached the 3 month mark she only needed to come in once a week for maintenance and strengthening.
Jane has been recently discharged and feels confident that when the weather warms up again she will be able to perform all activities without any pain or discomfort.
Congrats to Jane for being so dedicated to her recovery and being able to live her life pain free!
