With a torn labrum in his shoulder, wrestler Evan Jones was facing a surgery that would end his senior season. Through rehab at Unlimited Performance, he was able to delay surgery and went on to compete at the state level.

Evan Jones said, “I’ve grown up wrestling. At wrestling camp, I dislocated my shoulder and I was going to wrestle the next day but the trainer there told me not to. I went to Midwest Orthopedic Institute (MOI) and they said I tore my labrum.”

Evan was told that he needed surgery and that he would need six months of rehab. “I did the quick math in my head and I was going to miss all of football and I was going to be ready to go in January. The State Wrestling Tournament was in February so I wanted to stick it out.”

Evan had the surgery and he went in to Unlimited Performance where he and his physical therapist Amanda worked to strengthen the muscles his arm and shoulder so that his should would not dislocate and he could complete the wrestling season.

Evan received the therapy and the motivation he needed at Unlimited Performance. “Everybody at Unlimited Performance knew what I was going through and they tried to help me through it,” Evan said. “It was really fun. It was like my own little team there, egging me on.” The team at Unlimited Performance had a plan for his recovery. Evan said, “I think we did it perfectly, too. I sat out right before regionals, took off a week of practice just rehabbing it, and I ended up winning Conference, Regionals, and Sectionals. I fell short from placing at State. I made it to the quarterfinals of State and the semifinal wrestle backs and fell short.”

Evan added, “If I wouldn’t have gone to Unlimited Performance, I definitely wouldn’t have been able to do what I did during the season. They really helped me to make it through the season, so I thank them.”
