Shoulder injury treatment in Zagreb

Treatment: Physiotherapy session
Provider: St Catherine Specialty Hospital
Date: Jul 2017

"I injured my shoulder when I was on vacation in Zagreb. Physical therapy was recommended because I was in such pain. I expected to be attached to a few machines and have some ice applied but boy was I pleasantly surprised. I am from the United States and there if you pay for 15 minutes therapy, you get only 15 minutes. Here everyone genuinely cared if I felt better and were not entirely driven by a clock. Ozren tried an Emmet technique on my shoulder and he seemed as pleased as me when it fortunately offered relief.

Everybody that helped took a few minutes to make sure I was comfortable and made me laugh. Instead of having something I dreaded I actually looked forward to coming.

Their expert help made me able to enjoy my vacation (with my granddaughter Alexandra Hurd who the group had previously helped) (We compared notes) instead of sitting quietly like I initially had to do because of the pain.

Everyone was wonderful, the results were excellent and I am almost well. What more could I ask.

Thanks to all my new friends for helping. You and the facility are great – and I am grateful!"
