Jo Ann’s Story

How long did you wait before deciding on physical therapy and what was the obstacle?
An orthopaedic guy told me a long time ago that if your pain wakes you up in the middle of the night, your body is telling you something, go find out what was going on. And it got to that point, so I scheduled an appointment. The doctor said it was Bursitis and gave me a shot and decided I needed some PT.

What was and how bad was your problem prior to receiving physical therapy?
I was limping badly and having to hang on to the bannisters when I went up and down the three steps into our house.

What would you say to someone who was experiencing pain but skeptical about physical therapy?
I would urge people to open your mouth and speak, if you have a concern.

Out of all the things that you enjoyed about coming to Preferred Physical Therapy, what did you enjoy the most?
The comradery. The asking questions and getting answers – a lot of people don’t know what questions to ask or they are afraid to ask questions.

What were you wanting to achieve and did we help you to achieve it?
​​​​​​​Yes, definitely. We did the stuff here and I’m working good now. I can go up and down ladders. I can’t play the violin… but I couldn’t play it before. I’m pain free now!
