Meet Charles “Chuck” Clark, a patient who has been working with Sarah Schmautz, DPT at Orthopedic Rehab in Kalispell rehabbing his left shoulder after a Rotator Cuff tear and surgical repair. He also came to Orthopedic Rehab in 2013 following a Total Knee Replacement surgery. When Chuck began physical therapy for his shoulder, his limitations included a very stiff arm with only partial movement. He is now able to move his arm up and forward with little difficulty with a much wider range of motion. In Chuck’s words, “They took very good care of me. I achieved most of my goals. My experience was very positive.”
Many of you may know Chuck, who is a native of the valley who worked in the plumbing and heating industry, and as a contractor for 22 years. He was involved with the construction of the addition of Flathead High School, other rural schools and additions, and various motels in the Flathead Valley.
With his shoulder rehab complete, Chuck looks forward to following his love of working in the garden this summer, fishing, and hunting in the fall. Way to go Chuck! Thank you for entrusting Sarah Schmautz, DPT and Orthopedic Rehab with your Physical Therapy rehabilitation!
