In Luke’s own words:
Let’s face it, it’s no secret that the average physiotherapist hates shoulders…they are complex and notorious for bamboozling even the most seasoned professional. But complex doesn’t have to mean complicated and I strive to make the shoulder complex simple for my patients so that they better understand what’s going wrong and how best they can fix it.
Successful shoulder rehabilitation doesn’t happen by accident.
You gotta know what you are doing…Luke does.
So finally let me ask these questions of you:
- Are you happy with your shoulder function and strength?
- Have you felt that you could have achieved more in a physiotherapy session?
- Do you get the feeling that sometimes you are disconnected or isolated?
- Have you ever been pushed way to hard and your gut feeling was “that was too much”?
- Right now, do you have a shoulder injury but aren’t sure what to do about it or who to see to get help?
If you have answered “Yes!” to any of these questions then Luke can help.
