How ACPT Helped Cristian T. Recover 90%+ Shoulder Mobility

Cristian T.’s recovery journey at Advanced Care Physical Therapy began with a pizza. Walking down the frosted sidewalk on Harford Rd after retrieving his take-out order, Cristian and his slices took an unexpected tumble. Cristian’s damages that frigid evening turned out to be much greater than a spoiled dinner: torn pectoral tendon and shoulder tendon, damaged rotator cuff, and nerve damage resulted in him receiving three operations.

After serving the Parkville community for over 25 years, ACPT has become a trusted provider of physical therapy for so many of our Parkville neighbors, and Cristian is no exception. When asked how he found ACPT, Cristian said, “I looked for the clinic closest to home, and I can throw a rock at your parking lot from mine.”

Cristian was treated by ACPT’s owner and co-founder, Ted Vlahoyiannis, PT. “For over 20 sessions, Ted worked everything out and what he did worked perfectly,” said Cristian, “He pushed me to do better.”

 “When I went back to the doctor, he said, ‘You’re doing good I am surprised you can move your arm that much!” Cristian has reported regaining over 90% mobility in his arm since receiving physical therapy at ACPT.

“I am still very happy with the operation and care that I got afterward to get me back into the shape I need to be in. My recovery has been a success story.”
