"Amazing! I have frozen shoulder in my left shoulder. I had it about two and a half years ago in my right shoulder. I went to physical therapy and I did not get relief for 18 months. One visit to Tammy Nelson and my shoulder feels great! I wish I would have gone to her when the other shoulder was acting up."
