in Carmichael, CA |
i visited for hip pain, from a broken hip twenty years ago, resulting from a roller blading accident. Dr. Shea and Stephanie were vey caring and supporting the least invasive procedures, to see if these solutions would benefit my pain. I had an MRI, but it failed to show accurately due, to hardware from the originall surgery. I have had two steroid injections which did manage pain, but still limited my goals of being able to hike, ride bikes and attend regular yoga classes.
