Shoulder Pain

June 4, 2011

Dear Cathy:

I went to an orthopedic doctor as I had injured by right shoulder on May 10,
2011. After having X-rays and an MRI the doctor indicated that I had three ripped
rotator cuff muscles, luckily they were not ripped from the bone. I was advised
that physical therapy could help but that only surgery would help repair the torn

After reading information online that indicated that torn rotator cuffs can heal
naturally. I decided to try acupuncture and have been coming to you two days
per week since May 16, 2011 and as of today I have been pain free and have
85% movement in my right arm.

I am confident with continued acupuncture treatments I will have 100% mobility in
the next few weeks.
