Ashley’s Story

How long did you wait before deciding on physical therapy and what was the obstacle?
It took me about 4 or 5 years with pain. It has really been impacting my ability to just enjoy the outdoors and being able to play sports with my friends. I was also nervous about having lifelong hip issues like my family.

What was it and how bad was your problem prior to receiving physical therapy?
I was having really bad hip and knee pain when I would try hiking and running.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?
It was preventing me from feeling some relief for my future self. Hip issues run in my family and I wanted to be more proactive and help my pain now.

What would you say to someone who was experiencing pain but skeptical about physical therapy?
Don’t be, I was also a little nervous to take that step but I wanted to invest in my health and be proactive to prevent things further down the line from happening.

Out of all the things that you enjoyed about coming to Preferred Physical Therapy, what did you enjoy the most?
Everyone was really, really nice, the community environment was very welcoming. Everyone was very knowledgeable. They explained in detail why things were happening and why they were recommending certain exercises.

What were you wanting to achieve and did we help you to achieve it?
I wanted to be able to do all the things I love doing without pain getting in my way.
