Rehab following 2 shoulder surgeries with The Basketball Doctors

Rehab following 2 shoulder surgeries with The Basketball Doctors

I had two latarjet shouler reconstructions (both shoulders) and an arthroscopic AC Joint repair on my left shoulder this last summer. Injuries resulted from playing high levels of ice hokcey. Gabe was my physical therapist for both surgeries. He did an amazing job! I was allowed to start PT 3 1/2 weeks from surgery and within 2 weeks of Gabe working with me I had about 80% mobility back after both surgeries. After 3 months from the last surgery I was able to start weight training. Within 3 1/2 months from the last surgery I was able to perform trap bar deadlift at 370 lbs. My goal was to get back into compete shape as if I were going to go back and play NCAA ice hockey and Gabe was able to give me a strong base in order to do that. I can’t recommend The Basketball Doctors and Gabe enough! He is super personable and takes a genuine interest in helping his clients get better. He will match your drive and push you to get better while also keeping your safety priority. Most people don’t like going to physical therapy, but he made it fun. I looked forward to going to PT the three days a week that I went. Currently I am able to lift weight that I couldn’t before the surgeries and I owe a lot of that to Gabe. He is a first class person and physical therapist! If I ever need more PT, Gabe and the Basketball Doctors, are the people I am going to!
