"5 Natural Ways To Stop Shoulder Pain...Without A Visit To The Doctor's Or Taking Medications"
Best adult decision I've made.
BLUF: Shoulder pain prevented me from enjoying exercise or significant physical activity and, thanks to Danelle, I bought a bike.
I found Danelle through Definitions DC because I was having increased problems with a long-standing shoulder issue. I was nervous about my first foray into Physical Therapy but it had to be done. Speaking with Danelle on the phone put me at ease immediately - great listener, very patient, and reassuring. She offered an initial diagnosis to assure therapy with her was the right course of action and helped me work through my insurance requirements and paperwork. I was confident with my choice when I began feeling a difference in my shoulder during the first session. I ask a ton of questions and she is ALWAYS PATIENT and THOROUGH in explaining the course of therapy and what I was feeling during the treatment. Sessions with her are not only physically productive for healing but a great experience for self-learning and understanding how to prevent future issues. After a short couple months I feel great and have confidence that I can prevent, or at least recognize, future concerns to maintain a pain-free shoulder.
Particularly for those putting off Physical Therapy - just call her. I'm betting it will be one of the best adult decisions you'll make too.
Danelle has the heart, mind and hands of a healer. After repeated medication prescriptions for back pain and shoulder pain, I decided to attend one of her free events and I knew that she was the best choice for me. Very attentive and personable. She helped me to recover and to adopt better habits so that I remain healthy. She texted me during the week to check in. She even went as far as to contact my personal trainer to ensure both of their recommendations were aligned. I have also visited her twice for her therapeutic massages and they are heavenly.

Danelle is a healer! I’d been experiencing progressively worsening pain and reduced mobility for several years in my shoulder and hip. On a recommendation from a colleague, I made an appointment with Danelle. She listened to my symptoms, and carefully evaluated movement in my shoulder and hip to identify the underlying problem. With her therapy, and follow up stretches and exercises, I have much more mobility and a lot less pain. Danelle is encouraging, and practical! I’m looking forward to getting back to activities that I enjoy. I highly recommend Danelle and Performance Plus PT!
