Kassidy’s Story

What was and how bad was your problem prior to receiving physical therapy?
It was about 2 to 3 days. I had hurt my hip at practice when I was shooting the ball. It was like a stabbing  or a really painful pain. I did a lot of icing and yoga to see if it was something I could fix at home but it hadn’t really helped very much.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?
I had a hard time shooting the ball and doing a lot of long distance kicks and little passes.

What would you say to someone who was experiencing pain but skeptical about physical therapy?
There’s nothing to be skeptical about. I’m sold on physical therapy. It’s noninvasive and it’s effective. I would say do it. All you have to do is exercises to treat the cause of the problem on a mechanical basis. I have found physical therapy and it works wonderfully!

Out of all the things that you enjoyed about coming to Preferred Physical Therapy, what did you enjoy the most?
I liked that could talk to them about what happened and they understood and knew how to help me right away.

What were you wanting to achieve and did we help you to achieve it?
I just wanted to know what was making it hurt and how I could fix it. The exercises and a lot of the stuff that they did made it feel a lot better and it got better really quickly and it doesn’t hurt any more.
