Shannon

Shannon's Story

“My recovery went great,” Shannon reports. “I only had a week or so of complete downtime – recovery time was minimal. I’m back at work with no swelling, no numbness, no pain, no problems. I can run three flights of stairs if I need to again, and I can climb any hill I want to climb.”
