Shirley Charles had been suffering with pain in her right shoulder from bicepital tendonitis for over one month. She was unable to move her right arm, and said, “The pain was awful. I had to use my left arm to raise my right arm.” Shirley was unable to reach into cabinets and had difficulty performing everyday activities like cleaning and dressing.
Before coming to ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center, Shirley had tried two cortisone shots, which gave her temporary relief at best. Her doctor then recommended the combination of acupuncture and physical therapy. “Even just after my first treatment, I began to feel much better and was very impressed!”
While receiving physical therapy at ARC, Shirley had manual therapy, shoulder mobilizations and soft tissue release, along with stretching and strengthening exercises. She also received acupuncture with stimulation in combination to achieve optimum results. When Shirley started her treatment with ARC, she reported a pain level of 7 out of 10. After one month’s worth of treatments, Shirley’s pain is now down to zero.
“I feel better about myself. I wake up in the morning with no pain! After my treatments, I just feel like a better person.” Shirley said that she would recommend ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center to anyone in pain. “Spending time at ARC is like spending time with friends who listen and care!”
