Sheree’s Total Shoulder Replacement

“Best Program around”

Sheree Hester was very anxious about her first visit for physical therapy after shoulder replacement. Sheree works in healthcare and over the years due to heavy lifting and pulling, she was in need of shoulder replacement.

Ms. Hester’s plan of care started with pain control and maintaining the motion at her wrist and elbow. As her program progressed the focus shifted to range of motion at her shoulder. Since Ms. Hester’s surgery was what is called a “reverse total shoulder replacement,” her rotator cuff is no longer what is responsible for initiating movement at her shoulder. Instead, her deltoid is responsible for most of the movement, and her plan of care needed to include strengthening her deltoid so it could perform its new job.

She said, “Everyone was so kind and friendly at Elite PT, it made me lose my anxiousness.  They made me feel like part of the group working there. As the treatment became harder, the therapist grew to be friends.  And it’s these friends that help you and keep your spirits up. I now consider them all friends for life!”

When asked if Sheree would recommend Elite, she replied, “I highly recommend Elite Physical Therapy. They are an all around great, fun, and knowledgeable group. They are absolutely the best program around!”
