Participant in pilot study at USC Clinical Biomechanics Orthopedics Research Lab
Cecilia was mugged in 2006 resulting in a broken clavicle and the injury eventually caused damage to her rotator cuff. She had been living in pain for years. Surgery was too expensive and other forms of treatment proved to be ineffective.
Cecilia agreed to be a participant in David Luedeka and Lori Michener's study that tested the effectiveness of closed chain exercise on full thickness rotator cuff tears.
“Before therapy, I couldn’t even wash my back in the shower. Now, I forget I’ve ever had an injury"
