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.

At 16, William 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 were 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 the 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”
