Andre’s Story

How long did you wait before deciding on physical therapy and what was the obstacle?
After a couple of months, I waited because I am a firm believer that you should go to your doctor right away and go through a process to see if they refer you to a physical therapist.

What was it and how bad was your problem prior to receiving physical therapy?
It was hard to walk and sit up and down.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?
It was preventing me from a future of being able to play with my grandchildren and travel.

What would you say to someone who was experiencing pain but skeptical about physical therapy?
There is nothing to be nervous about, you have to just go for it. Even if you are in pain, if you hope to get better you have to do something about it.

Out of all the things that you enjoyed about coming to Preferred Physical Therapy, what did you enjoy the most?
Everyone is super friendly and they make you feel comfortable.

What were you wanting to achieve and did we help you to achieve it?
My goal was to have less pain in the inflamed areas and that is definitely the case.
