Gideon’s Story

How long did you wait before deciding on physical therapy and what was the obstacle?
I had a lot of pain in my neck and lower back. It is from a previous injury that I had at work. I have been living with it for the past eight years. It got worse before I came here.

What was it and how bad was your problem prior to receiving physical therapy?
My quality of life was bad. I couldn’t really sit for a long time. I couldn’t really stand for a long period of time. I couldn’t walk down a block – I couldn’t walk that far.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?
I couldn’t do things I would like to do, like go hiking, things like that.

What would you say to someone who was experiencing pain but skeptical about physical therapy?
Physical therapy is the way to go if you want to improve your quality of life. Definitely consider Preferred Physical Therapy. It’s worth it. I have improved in my time here. The issues that I have, I have made improvement in them. I’m going to make further improvement. I will mention Preferred physical Therapy to others. I will be coming back!

Out of all the things that you enjoyed about coming to Preferred Physical Therapy, what did you enjoy the most?
Nick, Alyssa, Jessica, Lexie. Everybody has been really, really nice. Everybody here tries their best to help you and it makes you feel good. They make you feel like you’re important. They want to help. It was kind of like a family atmosphere here. Everybody knows each other. When you walk in

What were you wanting to achieve and did we help you to achieve it?
I’m not able to run, yet but I am able to go hiking. I’ve been hiking! So, I have been improved to the point that I was able to hike. Of course I’d like to do more of that but of course, what do I need? More physical therapy!
