Crysti’s Story

How long did you wait before deciding on physical therapy and what was the obstacle?

I waited about 8 weeks after my car accident.

What was it and how bad was your problem prior to receiving physical therapy?

I was in a car accident and injured my shoulder. I tried using a heating pad at home and my husband would massage it.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?

It was hard to do simple things like blow-drying my hair. My car accident was in the summer and we are very active out on the boat. I was not able to wakeboard and I just kept thinking it would heal.

What would you say to someone who was experiencing pain but skeptical about physical therapy?

Do it because if you aren’t seeing changes at home. Nothing is going to change if you don’t do anything about it.

Out of all the things that you enjoyed about coming to Preferred Physical Therapy, what did you enjoy the most?

Everyone knows your name and is happy to see you. Everybody knows you and is invested in your case. That you not only do exercises but they work on the area that is injured.

What were you wanting to achieve and did we help you to achieve it?

Getting healed and seeing the difference.
