In February, 2005, I slipped on some ice fracturing my left upper arm at the shoulder. My life changed in an instant and three weeks later, I had undergone major surgery to the shoulder and remained in a sling for 7 weeks. When I was ready for rehabilitation, I wanted to consider a clinic that was not only convenient but a clinic that would help me to focus on getting back to optimal health so I could play golf and ski again. This is very important to me as I have been very active in those two sports. I picked SEMI. Presently I am receivinga combination of physical, chiropractic and massage therapy. Each of these health professionals have been working very hard to assist me back to optimal health with the goal that I will be playing recreational sports once again. Because of their commitment to my health, I am pleased to say that I have been able to get out on the links sooner than expected and the surgeon is pleased with my progress. At this point, I will not require further surgery.
