Angel’s Story

How long did you wait before deciding to get physical therapy? What was the obstacle in coming to physical therapy?
It was probably a couple of months before I finally made the call over here. It was just uncertainty. I didn’t think it was going to work.

How bad was your back pain before coming in for physical therapy?
It was pretty bad. For a while there I was walking with a cane.

What was your back pain causing you to miss out on?
I was missing out on every day activities. I was basically just sitting on the couch in pain.

Did you have any idea of what physical therapy could do for you before coming to PPT?
I wasn’t sure. I’ve had physical therapy before and I didn’t work. This one actually worked.

What did you enjoy most about coming to Preferred Physical Therapy?
I really enjoyed talking with all the people. I enjoyed all of your company.

What would you say to someone who’s skeptical about physical therapy?
I would tell them to give it a try. They have nothing to lose except pain.

What was your goal and did we help you to achieve it?
Well, to be able to move better was what I was wanting to achieve and I have achieved that so you definitely helped.
