Dennis’s Story

How long did you wait before deciding on physical therapy and what was the obstacle?
I went to see my doctor and he said, “You need some physical therapy.” I did a series of shots and some electric stimulation.

What was and how bad was your problem prior to receiving physical therapy?
I tore the tendons in my leg and ankle. There was a lot of pain, a lot of swelling, all the way up to the knee and leg.

What would you say to someone who was experiencing pain but skeptical about physical therapy?
I’ve told people before that wanted to go to the chiropractor and I’d say, “Have you ever tried physical therapy?” It has worked really good for me. Always do the little stuff before you do the major stuff.

Out of all the things that you enjoyed about coming to Preferred Physical Therapy, what did you enjoy the most?
They made me better, so what else can I say?
