Jay’s Story

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

I was in an automobile accident and I had to wait till I was released from the hospital.

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

I had a lot of pain. It was mainly in my hips and lower back. It made it hard for me to do anything normal.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?

It was preventing me from doing day-to-day activities such as walking and house chores. You don’t want to do much when you don’t feel well.

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

I would say it’s okay to be nervous. It is somewhat painful but they are here to help you. It’s always helpful to have someone who is educated in this by your side helping you and knows what they’re doing.

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

I enjoyed working with one of the pt’s Hannah the most but everyone here is so helpful and accommodating and that’s what you need. When you go to physical therapy you want the people you’re working with to want you to get better.

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

I needed to walk better and have my gait better. That’s what we worked on and now I’m walking better and more confident I won’t have another accident.
