Finally pain-free after years of agony. Tangelo and Dr. Jordan have far exceeded expectations and the results have been amazing.

I suffered rotator cuff injuries to both shoulders that significantly limited my range of motion and strength in both shoulders to the point that I had difficulty lifting even a gallon of milk into the refrigerator and couldn’t get a 5-pound weight over my head. Surgery was not needed and so I was ordered physical therapy at OHSU. After two rounds of PT (nearly 15 to 20 visits) and not getting anywhere, I gave up.

While the everyday pain subsided a little after the PT, my range of motion and strength never improved. When the everyday pain increased to a point of being unbearable, I visited Tangelo because of their ability to offer massage, chiropractic, and physical therapy in one visit. This was my last attempt before requesting surgery and figured the trifecta of massage, chiropractic and PT would help, but I was skeptical because of prior results. Tangelo exceeded expectations.

My first visit (one hour) with Dr. Jordan included the typical PT measurements, but also included deep tissue, chiropractic work, and several PT options. After the session, Dr. Jordan went over a detailed treatment plan and Monica (front office) discussed several package options as well as discounts available through partner businesses. I contemplated the package, but received a discount from a partner business and wanted to see how a few visits went.

I have now completed around 10 visits and am free from the daily pain, can lift milk into the refrigerator, have significantly increased my range of motion, and can lift with relative ease 10 pounds over my head. Dr. Jordan’s deep tissue work, cupping and grasping methods, chiropractic adjustments, and PT, coupled with PT work on my own, are a direct result of the success I have had.[…] I highly recommend Tangelo and plan to continue with a maintenance plan after the treatment plan has ended.
