Doris DeRosa
Frozen Shoulders Can Freeze Your Active Lifestyle
Doris DeRosa, an active 66 year old was tired of her pain limiting her lifestyle. Doris had been suffering with frozen shoulders for over a year. During that year, Doris went to two orthopedists resulting with no relief from her pain. Doris said, “You do so many things with your arms and it became difficult to lift and carry anything without pain.

After seeing two orthopedists with no results, she was referred to a rheumatologist who recommended physical therapy and acupuncture treatments. Doris had never received acupuncture, so upon coming to ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center, she had no idea what to expect. Much to her surprise, Doris said with enthusiasm, “After my first treatment the pain started to subside!”

While receiving treatment at ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center, along with acupuncture, she had manual therapy focusing on shoulder mobilization and soft tissue release. She also received stretching, strengthening and stabilization exercises. Her acupuncture also included electrical stimulation for added pain relief.

After completing her treatment, Doris said to the therapists, “I am now able to do all the things that I couldn’t do before: swim and even yard work, which I really enjoy. It’s just wonderful to be pain free!” Doris also went on to express how kind, considerate and concerned all the staff and therapists were at ARC. Doris will be eagerly referring friends to ARC.
