"I injured my shoulder long ago and never really did anything about it until the chronic pain led me to see Dr. Tello recently. I had a hard time with presses overhead and mobility with a lot of lateral moves. I thought my body would recover naturally but neglecting it probably did more harm.
After seeing Dr. Tello, with video analysis with the way my body compensates. We were able to identify the weaker muscles/the ones that never fired. It was an eye opening experience to see what my body was actually doing vs. what I thought it was doing. You won't ever know something is incorrect until you see it from the outside in which I found extremely helpful. Also pin pointing where the weakness/pain was especially helpful to help strengthen the other bigger muscles to aid.
Overall my experience with Orca has been nothing short of excellent as the customer service/scheduling/Dr. Tello has been the best doctor I've seen in years. I highly recommend for those in consideration to at least do an exam with Dr. Tello because I've never really felt like anyone else was able to figure out what was causing pain or discomfort. Thank you Dr. Tello really appreciate all your work!"
