Shoulder patients stories
At 16, William Steck broke his collarbone in an ice hockey accident. However, the injury had in fact caused more damage than just this. After a series of further injuries, (shoulder separations and dislocations) the pain and weakness in his shoulder was too great to ignore. He couldn't pick up his backpack, or throw a football without pain. Dr. Stone stitched up his labrum and rotator cuff, drained excess fluid and removed a bone fragment. The first day after surgery, William noticed that his shoulder felt "more a part of my shoulder than it had been in three years". During physical therapy he says "I almost cried when I did my first throwing exercise and could throw and catch a 2lb weight with no pain. It was just the best feeling in the world."

Patient broke humerus and tore his rotator cuff in a bike crash. "Two weeks ago," he says "only 2 and a half months out I went on the most grueling, punishing rocky downhill ride I've ever been on and I've been riding bikes since I was 20 ...... didn't bother my shoulder at all and I was just blown away."
