3 Words That Describe You: Funny, Dependable, Hardworking
What brought you to PT? A few months ago I suffered a second injury to my left shoulder. It was a another dislocation after having had a previous surgery to repair it.
How have you benefited from your PT experience? I feel better and more dedicated to my long term well being. PT has given me the push I needed to recover and begin to move past what was once a weakness.
What would you recommend to someone with the same injury? My advice would be to address your weakest area and make it your strongest. I think I could have avoided my second injury if I had maintained proper exercise and strengthening of my shoulder.
What activities are you excited about getting back to? I look forward to training for obstacle course races once again and another goal would be pick a totally new physical activity and try to do my best at it.
