MDT or Cadaver Tendon Surgery? Good Choice.
serious fall landing on my right shoulder, I experienced serious pain and
eventually repeated shoulder dislocations which were both painful and
embarrassing. After consulting with the orthopedic surgeon and discovering that
the surgery would require the use of cadaver tendons as well as a long
rehabilitation period, I consulted with Maccio Physical Therapy. After an
evaluation and a short series of visits, I was provided with an exercise
program which has not only decreased the pain dramatically but also my shoulder
no longer dislocates. What an amazing result. Thank you so much for another
success story by the staff of Maccio Physical Therapy and the McKenzie Method.
I will be ever grateful to you." -Rosemary
