Kristin’s Story

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

I was experiencing issues around 2 weeks before I sought help.

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

Since I had treatment for a tendon across the top of my foot, the bottom part of my foot got really tight.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?

I was missing out on yoga which was disruptive to my life because I go to two classes weekly and I had to do a lot of modifications is able to do them which destroyed the practice.

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

Go, There is sometimes some pain but never excruciating. But here they tell you to ease off your exercises if they are painful.

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

I enjoyed the people, everyone who I worked with, and the people at the desk. I enjoyed the atmosphere and exercises. Sometimes it’s a massage and one on one and then exercises. Here I enjoyed how they got to the bigger issue and that then helped what was going on with me that was causing the smaller problems.

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

I wanted to be pain-free. Now I have an idea that the pain in my foot is actually caused to the pain in my foot and it won’t reoccur which is what I really wanted. Yes, you helped me to achieve my goal.
