I need a GOOD physical Therapist for my shoulders

Was diagnosed with rotator cuff tendinitis in my right shoulder (pretty sure it's in my left too) in spring. My doctor sucks.. didn't inject the cortisone shot in the proper location, horrible bedside manners, etc. He's in his 60's and on his way out so I think he just doesn't give a shit. The associated physical therapy practice (lady was about 80 years old) did nothing more than rub my shoulder (and no happy endings!) along with ultra sound which I'm pretty convinced does nothing. As far as exercises she was going along with a sheet I had from a buddy that his PT gave him after he separated his shoulder. I could go on and on about how shitty they are but anyways...

I found a shoulder rehab workout online called "throwers 10"

http://www.safethrow.com/ExerciseThr...#39;s%2010.pdf

I stopped going to the PT and started doing that and it has helped a lot, the problem is I don't stick with it and need to keep off it a little more than I have been.

I'm looking for a good physical therapist that is familiar with shoulder sports injuries (this was done from too much rock climbing/not enough rest days). One that can help me with the exercises and measure my progress. Looking to go like once a week for a month and then maybe once every two weeks, etc.

Anyone have a good experience? It'd be nice if the staff was younger than my grandparents also I'm in the city on the northwest side but wouldn't mind traveling if the place is really good.

If you want the best, Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush is a good bet. Specifically Dr Brian Cole for athletes with shoulder problems. Start there if you can get an appointment

I know a place by my house back in Chicago where they do wonders.

Kegger should have their number on speed dial
