Dr. Steven Baroody shares an interesting story about a woman who receives lots of treatment on her shoulder for shoulder pain, but her shoulder is not the problem.
Dr. Steven Baroody is a 2004 graduate of New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, NY. A martial artist for more than thirty years, he was introduced to chiropractic when he injured his lower back being thrown. The quick recovery that followed, and the opportunity to help others convinced him that chiropractic was the career for him.
Halfway through his education, however, Dr. Baroody sustained a shoulder injury serious enough to require surgery. After the surgery, however, active release therapy (ART) accelerated his rehabilitation and enabled him to return to both chiropractic and the high level of martial arts he had enjoyed before the injury.
Having been through the pain of a chronic injury, and the long search for someone who could help him, Dr. Baroody became very well-versed in the diagnosis and treatment of shoulder injuries, and pursued full certification in ART to allow him to provide the same quality of care that he had received.
