“I had a slight torn RC in my left shoulder, this tear was made worse by tieing my work apron in the back daily. My left arm is my dominant arm, so I wanted it fully restored. The MRI confirmed the tear, and Dr. Spires Sr. avoided surgery with 4 weeks of PT. I have full use of my arm now. I love to fish, and I was actually fearful that I would have to improvise my fishing methods.”
