I began noticing shoulder pain in the fall of 2017. I saw a doctor in April 2018. When my doctor told me how much improvement I might see with a PRP injection followed by physical therapy after months of pain and increasing immobility, I was skeptical. I received a PRP injection and started PT, hopeful to just be able to move my arm behind my back or out to the side without having surgery. At the time I could not put on a coat, lift my arms in front of me, reach out to grab coffee at a drive up window, rake my yard, or even open a jar without pain due to a worn out rotator cuff. 8 weeks later, I can do all of those things with only minor irritation. I am grateful for Tom’s help and hope to have put off surgery for a while. The stretches and exercises he taught me, as well as practical advice for increasing reps and intensity, will help keep me moving!
