Patient Success Stories
When fitness is your job, it’s important to stay healthy and pain-free. Patient Margaret O. recently sent us her story and shared how Touch of Health and Dr. Patrick Tyrance healed her bicep tendinitis and allowed her to enjoy her job again.
Stuart’s wife, Grace, calls her husband “Mr. Fixit.” He’s the man to call if you want a ceiling fan hung, a new door installed, or anything else that requires handyman skills.
Until a year ago, those tasks were nearly impossible for the 82-year-old St. Petersburg resident. Suffering from arthritis in his right shoulder and tears in his rotator cuff, Stuart couldn’t raise his right arm over his head. Even small shoulder movements were painful.
