Kurt’s Story

What was and how bad was your problem prior to receiving physical therapy?
I fell off a ladder onto flagstone and broke my back. I had to wear a very hard shell to brace my back for months.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?
I couldn’t walk any long distance or climb or go up to the woods.

What would you say to someone who was experiencing pain but skeptical about physical therapy?
Physical therapy is a first “line approach” to recuperating… as opposed to surgery. Absolutely go that route first.

Out of all the things that you enjoyed about coming to Preferred Physical Therapy, what did you enjoy the most?
Everyone was very friendly, very professional, and I felt very confident in what they were doing. I felt like everyone knew what to do and how to do it. There was no pressure to create pain. The staff was very friendly and efficient.

What were you wanting to achieve and did we help you to achieve it?
​​​​​​​I was hoping that eventually I would strengthen my body enough that I would not have pain  or any residual problems down the road. I wanted to get back to my normal life again. Now, I can lift things, go for hikes, and enjoy life.
