Patient Of The Month: Division I Baseball Player
This month’s patient spotlight is on Brodie Carey, an 18 year old shortstop on his way to play Division I baseball at the University of Maine in the fall. Brodie came to SOPT with complaints of right shoulder pain, clicking and inability to throw a baseball without pain. Brodie worked hard both in the clinic and in the gym working on soft tissue mobility, rotator cuff strength and stability, and a gradual return to throwing following a prolonged period of shutdown for recovery. We often talk about recovery being the most underrated part of rehabilitation and even strength and conditioning, but Brodie bit the bullet and is now pain free. Congrats to Brodie!
“I started here with a baseball related injury. With the help of Sean and my own hard work I was able to return to normal. Coming here has really helped me reach my potential as an athlete in the weight room and on the baseball field. The environment as SOPT is warm and inviting. The therapists are knowledgeable, the front desk staff is accommodating and I never feel awkward or out of place. I, along with many other baseball players, have seen Sean for various injuries. I can’t speak highly enough of his expertise and attention to detail. Thanks!”
