HARD WORK PAYS OFF AFTER COMPLICATED INJURY AND SURGERY Andrea Grenier calls herself an optimistic person — she lives by the “glass half-full” philosophy. But when she recently walked into Kitsap Physical Therapy after rotator-cuff surgery, she was far from optimistic. Grenier had injured the same shoulder twice — the second time just three months after the first surgery. When she came to KPT earlier this year, she felt anxious and vulnerable. “I wasn’t getting the full mobility and flexibility back after the first surgery,” she says. “After having the first surgery and recovery not succeed, I was pretty pessimistic about achieving full recovery the second time.” Grenier wasn’t just pessimistic about recovery. She had decided she’d have to live with pain. But that changed during her first session with John Carlson, a physical therapist at KPT’s Port Orchard office. “John took that pessimism away and handed me hope,” she says. “Slowly but surely, he filled me with confidence that I would get through it and would become whole again.” With her treatment now complete, Grenier, indeed, feels whole. She says she’s experienced complete and total recovery. “It was a miracle,” she says. Carlson says treatment becomes complicated in cases such as Grenier’s. “We have a very good operating protocol for standard rotator cuff repair but when you add another injury on top of that, it becomes more unique,” he says. “You have to really understand the nature of

healing tissues and how to minimize the stress on them.” In the past two years, KPT’s post-surgery specialists have undertaken an in-depth study of top-level, evidence-based protocol used by top U.S. and international orthopedic specialists for physical therapy rehabilitation. KPT has trained all of its physical therapists — from seasoned ones to new graduates — in using these protocols. Grenier’s treatment was completely customized, based on her progress, concerns and needs. Prior to each session, Carlson conducted a quick evaluation to determine how her shoulder was healing, how her posture looked, what range of motion she had, and so forth. “On average, someone like Andrea would usually get back 75-80 percent function,” he says. “She attained well over 90 percent, which was better than we preliminarily projected.”

Besides the high-level protocols, Carlson also credits Grenier’s own motivation. “We’re only as good as the patient’s follow-through,” he says. “Andrea was excellent at communicating what was working and what wasn’t.” When she started her treatment at KPT, Grenier says she could barely lift her arm. As she grew stronger every week and understood what was “normal” for her recovery, she was determined to do the hard work. “I did the home exercises religiously to build the motion and strength,” she says. “When you’re in pain, it’s easy to forget what you’re supposed to do. But I felt really empowered to do it because they explained and showed the exercises to me at the office, then sent me home with sketches.” She says the encouragement she received from the entire staff also inspired her. “Everyone from the office staff to the technicians were supportive and understanding,” she says. “The whole office is amazing and caring, and has a special vibe.” Carlson says that customer service — from start to discharge — plays an important role in a patient’s treatment experience. “It’s important to have the right team with a high level of expertise when you need it,” he says, “and also the right team to listen carefully and communicate effectively with you — to be able to customize your program to facilitate the best outcome.”
