I’ve suffered multiple shoulder dislocations since childhood, resulting in my right shoulder feeling unstable, weak, and vulnerable to a new injury. In addition, my posture became tense and “locked up,” from trying to protect my shoulder.
Sleep was the biggest thing. I was uncomfortable because I had to immobilize my arm to protect my shoulder at night. I was so scared to try something new to support my arm, but the physical therapists at Wellspring found something that worked a lot better! Getting better rest has helped me tremendously.
My progress has been slow and steady, not scary or overwhelming like I expected. My perception was that physical therapy would be excruciating, and you’ll have to go through a rigorous process. But that has not been the case at Wellspring.
From the moment I walked in the door, I knew I was in the right place; everything felt so relaxing and holistic. You remove your shoes, and the aromatherapy smells so good—it lowers my stress level. Because the program is so comprehensive, you’re not just treating the shoulder; it feels like I am getting stronger overall, and my posture has improved (I am a half-inch taller now!) I really love the stations and the team approach. There’s good communication, variety, and consistency. You feel very well taken care of.
