After a few months of therapy at Paragon, I have regained 85% of my left arm movement and improved my golf game by cutting down on the size of my swing. Thanks Paragon!

What I appreciate most about Paragon is how careful my instructors are with my body, gently working within my own physical parameters to create a healthier me.
