Delos Therapy has some amazing clients with extraordinary stories and we want to take the time to share their success with our therapy. Meet Jennifer* who was suffering from frozen shoulder. Read her interview to find out her amazing transformation since starting Delos.

How did you hear about Delos?

JH: I heard about Delos from a current patient also suffering from frozen shoulder. Our symptoms were identical and they were seeing results so I decided to take the recommendation to try Delos.

What issues brought you to Delos?

JH: I was suffering from a frozen shoulder. The pain in my shoulder and arm had become so bad that I was unable to sleep. I lost the range of motion in my left shoulder such that I could no longer life it vertically or horizontally. It began taking a toll on my daily life – I couldn’t reach my back, wash my hair or drive a car. Others that I know who suffered from frozen should had surgery as a corrective measure and I wanted to do everything to avoid the knife.

What types of treatments did you try before coming to Delos?

JH: Before coming to Delos, I tried yoga and massage. Since I had lost so much ROM in that shoulder, I was physically unable to do many of the poses, like downward dog. The massage therapist tried his best to help me but was honest regarding the condition I was in and didn’t think he could help me.

What improvements have you made since starting Delos Therapy?

JH: Not to spoil the surprise but I have complete range of motion back! All of it! Not only that but I’m back in the gym beginning to rebuild the strength I lost along the way too. I can reach behind my back to stretch after workouts, I can drive, wash my hair, everything. While its been a long road, the payoff has well been worth it. My progress started slow and initially I was frustrated because it was hard to see my progress. My pain and inflammation were decreasing but my ROM was still limited. That’s when Kate suggested we begin tracking my progress with photos and measuring using marks on the treatment room walls. As my therapy began to gain traction, I was eager to come in and test my ROM limits. Once I could see the changes we were making, it was exciting to come in and see how much further we could get with each session.

What would you say to someone who hasn’t tried Delos Therapy?

JH: While I was a skeptic at first, as my progress was slow to start, its quite clear now that this therapy works. It’s so effective and can give you your quality of life back! I had to be diligent about repairing my body and follow the recommended consistency and frequency, but it paid off. The therapy works and I was able to completely avoid surgery. Whatever your condition is, Delos can help. Follow their plan and trust in their process, it’s worth it.
