I was talking with Nick after church one day, lamenting the fact that I would need to have shoulder surgery. He asked why and I explained that I had a prior injury that had not been repaired and that I had essentially stopped using my left arm because of pain. Nick encouraged me to do an initial consult with him and let him see if he could help me before I had surgery. Am I glad I did! Two months ago, my range of motion was so limited and the pain was so severe that I couldn’t lift my arm above shoulder height. Nick worked to first loosen the joint, then begin strengthening the joint. The results have been incredible. I now have the full range of motion in the arm. There is still a minimal amount of pain, but that continues to decline as the muscles are strengthened around the joint. I am very thankful to Nick for helping to restore the use of my arm while avoiding surgery. -Mark M.
