Beverly N. Williams – Reverse Shoulder Replacement/Physical Therapy

I can’t stop talking about the great job Dr. Martin Coleman did when he performed a Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement (Arthroplasty) on me in August, 2009. Not only was the recuperation of my left shoulder 100 times easier than when I had my right shoulder replaced in 2000, I am now back to using my shoulder the way I did before rheumatoid arthritis ate up the joint. I can reach for things now without pain, and getting dressed is no longer an agonizing chore. I also can raise both of my arms high in the air when cheering for my NFL team, the Pittsburgh Steelers! Awesome!

Dr. Coleman’s great work was followed by awesome physical therapy at OSC Physical Therapy. Everyone there made coming in for physical therapy fun, which helped me work through the pain. I couldn’t have asked for a better physical therapist than Jim Koske. Jim understood the limitations I faced due to rheumatoid arthritis affecting my joints and causing most of them to be man-made. He came up with a variety of exercises for me to do at OSC and at home to get my shoulder going.

Thanks to Orthopaedic & Spine Center, my left shoulder now feels as good as new.
