"Somehow, I injured my left shoulder. It was extremely painful laying on it, lifting, or stretching above my head. Even turning my arm the wrong way was terribly painful. At work, I have to reach above my head frequently. I honestly couldn't use my left arm at all. First, Dr. Delo took X-Rays, and then Dr. Delo used her ultrasound machine and pinpointed the two most painful areas. She gave me two steroid injections. She showed me exercises and said it would be a gradual "reaching" process. Within a week, things were back to normal. She also told me this could be repeated two more times in a year. I can now lie on my arm, reach, stretch, and lift with my left arm, with no pain. It is truly amazing. May I say that she is extremely ethical and very easy to talk to. You're a person with her, not a number." - Nancy R.
