Jade’s Story

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

I was experiencing issues around 2013. I was born without ligaments in my ankles so I started rolling and spraining them a lot.

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

I would sprain and roll my ankles a lot so I decided to get help.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?

I was a dancer and a gymnast and I wasn’t able to do the activities I was used to doing.

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

It is not as bad as you think it will be. At times it can be difficult but it’s worth it in the long run.

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

I love the one-on-one interaction with the therapists. I have been coming to physical therapy for years. It’s nice that you can joke around and still get done what you need to get done.

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

I mainly wanted to be able to walk and get back to dance. I have reached those goals since coming to preferred.
