It was not at an upscale Hollywood party or a chance encounter at a movie premiere. Instead, the origins of their relationship lie in a shared ordeal – a shoulder surgery. Interestingly, the universe had its play in bringing them together, as in 2012, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, another action legend, underwent shoulder surgeries on the very same day. Both were preparing for their roles in the 2013 blockbuster Escape Plan.

Transitioning from surgery to the silver screen, especially for roles demanding physical rigor, is not a straightforward path. It requires not just grit and conviction, but expert guidance. Enter Heather Milligan. Schwarzenegger’s surgeon in Los Angeles, recognizing the need for specialized attention, recommended the star to Milligan. With a reputation for excellence, she had been the go-to therapist for many athletes. Schwarzenegger recounts, “Any football players or baseball players, any athlete, I always send them to her, because she’s the only one that really knows what they’re talking about.”

The stage was set. As the action star began his rehabilitation journey under Milligan’s expert care, the two found more than just professional resonance. There was an undeniable connection, a shared understanding, that went beyond the confines of the therapy room. However, their association didn’t transition into romance immediately. Instead, it was genuine gratitude that paved the way.
