I saw Dr. Brown based on the recommendation of a friend. I was having severe pain in my shoulder when raising my arm up and back. After x-rays and an MRI Dr. Brown stated I had some degeneration of the labrum associated with aging and bursitis. He recommended a cortisone shot and physical therapy. I did the PT twice per week for approx. 5 weeks. Very good results. I'm not experiencing any pain only tightness when making the up and away motion.
