Marv’s Story

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

I was experiencing issues for about a month. I wasn’t sure what the problem was so I went to the doctor and got referred here.

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

I was having pain in my groin area as I walked. A lot of aching is disruptive to my ability to keep moving. I had to stop and rest to make it go away.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?

Yes, you start to become less and less active and you can’t do what you used to be able to do.

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

I would always recommend it because it seems to help and work.

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

I enjoyed how everyone was cheerful and friendly. Everyone calls you by name and makes you feel a part of the group here.

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

I wanted to be able to move around and walk more without having any problems.
