Adcox ‘a new man’ after shoulder surgery


LEWISBURG, Tenn. — Brent Adcox was used to living with pain in his left shoulder. Years after dislocating it while playing college baseball, he was constantly dealing with the pain, especially while working out.

One day, he decided enough was enough.

Adcox is the principal of Cornersville High School, and he had come to know Jeffrey Adams, MD, an orthopedic surgeon on the medical staff at Maury Regional Health who also serves as the team physician for the Marshall County School System. Adcox knew just who to see about his shoulder.

“I got in with him through our trainer at Cornersville, and my son, who’s an athlete here at the school, has also seen him,” Adcox said. “I knew that he was a shoulder guy.”

Five months later, Adcox had undergone shoulder replacement surgery and physical therapy at MMC and was feeling like a new man.

“I should’ve done it three or four years before I did,” he said. “I’m a new man. I’m lifting weights and doing some overhead lifts that I haven’t done since I was in my 30s. I’m pretty much doing anything I want to do.”

He credits Dr. Adams and the entire Marshall Medical Center Physical Therapy team for their dedication to their patients.

“It was top-notch, great care,” Adcox said. “Dr. Adams was wonderful, and the therapists at Marshall Medical Center were wonderful. They went above and beyond to make sure that I had enough therapy. I wanted to make sure that I was ready to be active again, and they were really super thorough with me. Everything they did was top-notch.”

Maury Regional Health therapy centers are located in Columbia, Spring Hill, Lewisburg, Chapel Hill, Pulaski, Hohenwald and Waynesboro. In addition, some patients may qualify for therapy services through Maury Regional Home Services.
