Shoulder Success Stories

I would like to thank everyone at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC for helping me recover from my car accident. The staff was very professional and helpful. I had stiffness and pain in my neck and shoulders, the exercises and massage helped it greatly. There’s been dramatic improvement on how I feel and can do more daily activities. I would highly recommend Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC to anyone. Thank you all for everything you’ve done to help me feel back to normal.

When I first started here at Greendale PT I was in quite a lot of pain in my neck and shoulder areas. Since coming here, I have greatly improved thanks to the extremely skillful and caring therapists. They have taken the time to make sure I am doing each exercise correctly and their manual massage techniques are excellent. They have made me feel very comfortable on each visit. I would highly recommend Greendale PT to anyone and I am very happy with my progress, and the stretching and strengthening exercises they have taught me to use at home work. Thank you all so much for your dedication!

I had been having pain, on and off, in my neck and left shoulder for years after an auto accident. It was painful for me to work long hours, but with the help from Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC, I am able to work pain free. Additionally, I no longer have days when I cannot turn my head or get off the couch due to the pain. They are miracle workers that took the time and effort needed to fix my neck and left shoulder.

Amanda P.

When I began PT, I was unable to raise my left arm above chest level without pain. Physical exercises requiring the upper body was impossible. Now my shoulder is pain free, and I have resumed regular physical activity and exercise. The therapists at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC helped me through the process and gave me the confidence to take on more and more activity until I was back to normal. The education was the most important aspect of my treatment.

My time at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC was a great experience that resulted in significant improvement in the use of my right arm. Prior to therapy, I was experiencing severe pain in my right rotator cuff, but I subsequently had an 80-90% improvement in pain and my ability to perform tasks and activities that I was previously unable to do.

I am extremely happy with the staff of Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC. They have been friendly, professional, and exceptionally helpful in all their work with me. They frequently went above and beyond what I expected in terms of service. For these reasons, I will most assuredly return for future injuries and recommend them to my friends and family.

Thank you Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC for all of your help with everything. You are a great team, and I am very happy to have had the chance to work with you.

When I injured my shoulder and the MRI showed a tear in my rotator cuff, I was afraid I’d be spending the rest of my life sleeping in pain and would be unable to continue winter mountain biking. After only 4 visits there was a decrease in pain and increase in strength and mobility. Now it is almost back to normal and I am climbing once again.

As you know, I am a professional musician and prior to your treatment I need help on stage getting my guitars on and off. That’s no longer the case and my range of motion is back to normal. I owe you a massage.

After total shoulder replacement surgery, my recovery can be attributed to the exceptional therapy provided at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC. They put a program together for me that is amazing. I can do so many things now that I never thought I would do again.

I came to Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC after 4 shoulder dislocations which necessitated surgical repair. The experience has been GREAT! I arrived in February, a month out of surgery, with a shoulder that lacked any functionality. We started easy and simple and very gradually increased the complexity and difficulty of the exercises. All of the staff were supportive, attentive, and we had a lot of fun. I am leaving with a shoulder that is better and stronger than it ever was before the surgery. Thanks to everyone at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC for such a successful rehabilitation. It’s been great!

When I first came to Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC I could not use my left shoulder or arm. The pain was at a 10. My experience has been wonderful. The staff in Shrewsbury was very caring. They working you but did not push you to extreme limits. I am now able to do everything with my left arm.

Thank you to all the therapists and receptionist for making my experience a good one. I would recommend Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC to anyone needing PT.

Janice M.

I suffered from extreme pain on my shoulder due to a rotator cuff tear. After having surgery, I came for physical therapy and found the ladies were very helpful and extremely good with their work. The exercises have definitely improved my abilities in the last few weeks. It is unfortunate that my insurance does not cover any more sessions as I feel I could do more with therapy. The ladies here are very good, I recommend this to anyone.

H.K.B.

I would like to thank the entire staff at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC for their therapy treatment. I came in with limited mobility of my right shoulder and approximately 10-12 weeks later I was able to do almost everything I could do before my injury- including bowling which means a lot to me. I am back in league bowling and getting back to my regular average again. Thank you.

Thomas M.

My experience as a patient at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC was very positive for the following reasons: the relaxed atmosphere, no waiting time, the staff is courteous, motivated and professional, and I received individual treatment at each visit and was encouraged to do my very best. The result of my rehabilitation was everything I hoped for and I can not think of any improvement.

Gisele R.

I started physical therapy after tearing cartilage in my shoulder. I had a hard time just falling asleep, much less was able to do much with my arm. Over a couple months of attention and smart work outs at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC, I’m almost back to my pre-accident life. I work full time on a farm, hard physical labor is the name of the game- I couldn’t imagine doing this several months ago. Thanks a lot Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC, you guys helped me get there!

Christopher Z.

Before treatment I had somewhat minimal daily pain in my bicep and was unable to workout without pain. On my initial visit my therapist found I had very little range of motion in my shoulder as well. After a couple months of treatment, I now have full range of motion in my shoulder and no pain in my bicep. I am doing exercises with weights and no pain. I am very glad I chose Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC for my treatment.

Everyone at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC is extremely nice and professional. They helped me out immensely which I am very grateful for. I also love the fact that they are located within a gym which enables them to use gym equipment for their patients. I’ll be sure to come back to Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC for any future PT needs. Thank you everyone at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC for all you’ve done for me.

When I first began physical therapy I was experiencing pain down my arm and some tingling and numbness in my fingers. Now the tingling and numbness are gone and my range of motion has increased. The therapists have been wonderful and very responsive to my needs. This is the second time I have been treated here and I would recommend it to others.

Rosemary D.

I had a great experience at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC. The therapists are extremely knowledgeable, very caring, and professional. According to the surgeon that performed my shoulder surgery, I am 6 weeks ahead of where he expected me to be. I highly recommend Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC.

When I came to Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC I was not able to use my left shoulder as a result of acute tendonitis. During my time at physical therapy I received various treatments from heat and ice, to massage and exercises. It helped me to build my strength and increase the range of motion. Even though I still have a way to go to come back to 100% to my previous state of health before the injury, Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC helped me build confidence in myself and taught me how to improve and maintain my bones and muscle health. Thank you!

It has been over 10 years since my neck, back, and shoulder were affected by a car accident. 9 months ago, I tore the cartilage in my rotator cuff completely and it became necessary to have surgery. My doctor and I discussed that Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC would be my best option for success.

As soon as I walked in on the first day, I knew that Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC was for me. Every employee was compassionate and understanding to the pain I was in and how I was feeling. The staff seemed as dedicated to my recovery as I was. Together we worked on building my range of motion, my strength, and my spirits. Now obviously the manual massage was the best part of therapy, but what made a difference was their integration of different tools and exercises.

I am happy to say that today I have full range of motion, I am strong and I feel like a whole person again. A whole decade I spent in pain has now been remedied as Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC has given me my life back after the intense difficulty that is injury and surgery. Thank you so much for all that you do and continue to do so each day.

Allison A.

Having shoulder surgery really set me back from an active lifestyle. I was unable to work, exercise, or even play in my band. Shoulder recovery takes a long time to heal. Luckily Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC made my recovery as quick as possible. Their therapists were great, and their exercises helped. Before I knew it, I was back to work and rock climbing again. I am very thankful for their support.

Mike P.

When I began PT I was a tradesman who couldn’t pick his arm above his head. This week, I began doing one armed pull ups. The constant nagging pain is gone from my shoulder. Now I can return to all the activities I love. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication. I began PT with little confidence in the process. I was convinced I was doomed to spend the rest of my life in pain. From day one I felt comfortable here and I noticed results within the first few sessions. Thank you and good luck. I would strongly recommend Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC to anyone!

Ryan M.

I ripped my left bicep ligament off the bone and underwent surgery to reattach it. After removing my cast, my entire arm movement was very limited and my strength was gone. After a relatively short period of the time, the Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC staff managed to reestablish my arm movement to what is used to be. With their techniques and equipment, combined with their knowledgeable staff they achieved my recovery in a shorter time than my doctor expected. Good work in all aspects.

Sotirios V.

My experience at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC has been remarkable: after one month the improvement in my shoulder and back is noticeable. The staff went above and beyond, often helping me with other acute injuries- such as when I pulled my lower back. I will definitely be visit Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC in the future.

I sometimes need to be reminded that this is not a doctorate dissertation, nor should my exit comments require the use of a magnifying glass. So here goes…short and sweet and cursively average.

Most businesses and/or organizations are only as effective and efficient as those in charge. So, KUDOS go out to Jon for his professionalism, caring, and for creating a comfortable atmosphere to heal. But, most of all for hiring such an incomparable staff…a staff who are sensitive to individual needs, while methodically working their recovery magic…they know they’re doing and they do it well.

I have recommended and will continue to recommend Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC to my family, my friends, and the myriad of nice folks I happen to befriend on the struts.

Thank you everyone for getting me back to strong and healthy…gym ready! You are the best!

Marion K.

When I first came to Physical Therapy I had a frozen shoulder. I had trouble reaching for the simplest things and the pain was extreme. Now it is almost as though my shoulder was never frozen. The pain I felt is almost totally gone. My favorite thing was the working out scar tissue in my muscles. Although it hurt a lot at first, it made the most improvement I think. I would recommend Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC to anyone I know needing it and being as accident prone as I am, I’m sure I’ll be back many times in the future.

Jamie W.

Back in February I couldn’t even get my right arm up to my head to brush my hair and wash my face. I was diagnosed with a partial tear of the rotator cuff. Physical therapy was recommended- it was very painful to start but after 30 sessions I am back to normal. Thanks to all the great people at Shrewsbury. Without their dedication to getting me back to normal, I don’t know what I would be doing at this point. Now I can do all my normal activities without any severe pain. I have already recommended them to friends and family if they every need physical therapy.

Joyce G.

Your customer service rep, Cindy, should be a model for others to follow. She is very detailed and willing to help. Tarah was thorough with my treatment and very professional. She always asked how I was feeling and what could be done. She is always very friendly and polite, awesome person. Deb is funny and willing to help. Again caring for others is present with her and what she does. Alicia, again was awesome. She was very good to work with and is patient. Your entire team was awesome. I would recommend anyone to come here.

James G.

I would recommend anyone who has an injury or pain to come to Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC for an evaluation and therapy. I’ve been here twice for therapy and been helped immensely. Thanks to everyone at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC for their help and expertise.

Richard R.

The first time when I came here I had a lot of pain in my neck as well as my shoulder. But now it has improved greatly. Now I can lift heavy stuff without any pain at shoulders or neck. The staff at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC is very helpful. I would like to highly recommend everyone to visit Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC Shrewsbury if you need any physical therapy, they are great.

Chiragkumar P.

I had very bad pain in my right shoulder. I was not able to move my hand in most directions. I also had very bad pain in my hand during sleep, regular driving. I went to an orthopedic surgeon and he recommended physical therapy at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC. I was very impressed with the Shrewsbury location and all staff members. During the first ten visits I had pain during exercise but I also made significant improvements. All exercises helped me gain required movements while the therapists worked on my shoulder manually to minimize pain and improve mobility. All staff members were very professional and subject matter experts in therapy. With help of all therapists and support staff at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC my pain is almost gone. I sincerely thank all staff members.

Dinesh F.

I first came to physical therapy about 2 months ago with an anterior labrum tear. My Doctor said physical therapy aimed at strengthening my rotator cuff would result in me “symptom free”! After two months of sessions, about one per week and about one per week session at home I can say that I actually am symptom free. In the future I plan on performing the exercises I learned here at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC to keep my rotator cuff strong and maintain good shoulder stability.

Christian R.

After years of overuse and strenuous activity my right shoulder finally said “enough”. I had an MRI and it showed a bone spur, arthritis, and damage to my rotator cuff. I had to have surgery and I start my physical therapy in June 2009. On day one, I was evaluated and assured that I would regain the strength and mobility that I had in my right arm. It was not going to happen over night but with time, patience, and a commitment to doing my exercises correctly, I would fully recover.

The “open air” type of clinic at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC, Shrewsbury, MA was a great experience for me. Interacting with the other PT’s, Aides, and Patients really made coming to therapy enjoyable. Having the gym right there was a big advantage. I also had the opportunity to take part in the Aquatics Program where you do your therapy in a heated pool. I must say that this was a very important part of my rehabilitation. Exercising in the water is a great way to get results.

I have been to several PT clinics over the past 20 or so years and I have to say that Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC is at the top of the list. From the receptionists, to the therapists, to the aides, everyone here really makes you feel very well cared for. I have already referred many people to Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC who feel as I do and I will continue to do so in the future. Thank you all very much for being so caring, helpful, and most of all, making my recovery as fun as it could be.

Johnny D.

I had shoulder problems and now the pain is gone. The people in here are great and they know what they are doing to get you pain free.

Vinnie D.

Dear Greendale physical therapists and staff, since coming here I have seen a significant improvement in my left shoulder from the decreased pain to the more improved flexibility. Basically I could barely drive, open a can, or open a refrigerator with my left arm. Now, with the help of your consummate professional therapists, Tarah, Alicia, and Deb. I am doing mostly everything. Time will hopefully see even more improvement. The manual therapy, the taping and exercises were extremely important in my improved abilities. I would highly recommend Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC in Shrewsbury. Everyone is personable and wonderful. Cindy in the office is a gem to welcoming people.

Maureen G.

I am writing to thank Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC for all the help they provided me in freeing me from all pain in my arm. I work for Verizon, I am an implementation manager which requires long house at the lap top processing orders. The treatment of exercise and manual therapy that was provided to me allowed me today to be free of all pain, after approximately six weeks. The whole entire staff at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC is absolutely the BEST. From the very first visit to the last I have never met so many great people that are truly compassionate, friendly, and professional. I would highly recommend Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC to anyone that is need of therapy. You will be extremely satisfied and be grateful for the experience. Thank you.

Patty N.

When I came to Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC I was suffering from thoracic outlet syndrome. My right arm was numb, painful, and almost useless. The pain started to radiate down the right side of my back and up my neck. On my first visit they assessed my problem by having me move in different positions and rating my pain and numbness. In my four visits I was manipulated, rubbed, and taught exercises to help my problem. After these appointments, I am completely pain and numbness free thanks to the great people at Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC.
