Physical therapist Cheryl Ogran helps Linda Noll

recover from a shoulder injury

Chores can be hazardous work, just talk with Linda Noll. While vacuuming her stairs, a slight tug of the hose brought the machine crashing down on her shoulder. After months of pain and weakness, she sought help through Mercy Orthopedics.

Linda was referred to Mercy’s physical therapy department where the team guided every step of her recovery. “They did a really good job explaining my injury and adjusting my therapy based on how I was feeling when I arrived every day,” she explained. “Cheryl Ogran kept me optimistic about my chances of recovering my range of motion even when I was certain that was a lost cause.

The entire therapy and Health for Life group supported each other and maintained a relaxed but professional regard for each other. My experience could not have been better.”
