I am very physically active. I love long-distance bicycling, playing tennis, hiking, and working out in the gym. I first saw Dr. Milani because of discomfort in my shoulder when I played tennis. I was also having some discomfort in my lower back. We first tried physical therapy, which helped significantly but ultimately the pain and discomfort returned. We had discussed a gel injection for my shoulder and an epidural steroid for my lower back. I had both procedures this past summer in 2021. With a few more exercises added to my repertoire to strengthen my shoulder and my core, I am now 99% better because of the procedures I had at HSS. I’m able to enjoy all my activities again.
