Jill LaFreniere

At the end of December I had a fall while demonstrating a one leg box jump to my CrossFit class. As a result of this fall I tore my labrum. I didn’t realize how bad until after I woke up from surgery. I had 7 anchors placed in my shoulder. My surgery was in May and just two days after, I began my PT journey with Adam at Athletico Collinsville on May 28th.

I don’t think I was prepared to understand the extent of my rehab and just how much pain and discomfort I would be in. It took a total of 6 months to be able to enjoy fitness again and certain elements of CrossFit. Adam and his team cheered me on the entire way. They challenged me in ways I didn’t know I could be and I found a different type of strength along the way. Today I am as strong as I was physically prior to the injury but even stronger mentally. I truly could not have had the success I did without the staff at Athletico in Collinsville. I was very lucky to have a great team.
