Yes, we treat Shoulders!
At first glance, it might seem odd to talk about shoulder rehabilitation at a clinic called The Gait Center.
But, it is important to understand that our highly trained therapists treat the entire body, and we help a
large number of patients with diagnoses such as shoulder impingement, tendonitis, bursitis, rotator cuff
repair, frozen shoulder, etc. What draws patients to us is a combination of the expertise and focused
time our team brings to each patient, no matter the diagnosis; combined with our patient care
philosophy and a vast array of resources.
It is true that our entire team at The Gait Center has a passion to help patients with injuries or illnesses
that affect their ability to walk because there are so few other options for people. However, all of our
therapists come from a variety of backgrounds where they were fully trained, educated, and gained
experience and skilled expertise treating other parts of the human body including shoulders. They have
been successfully treating shoulders, and other body parts, throughout their careers, and are pleased to
continue that service here where they are given the time to do it right!
We often have former “gait patients” ask if we would help them with a new problem, unrelated to gait.
It is because they came to us in the past, and after experiencing the difference in the level of care we
provide, they didn’t want to go anywhere else for therapy. Physicians also often ask us, because they
were so impressed with our successful outcomes for their leg injury patients, would we consider helping
their shoulder patients as well??. . .and the answer is a resounding yes!!
