Mary’s Story

What was and how bad was your problem prior to receiving physical therapy?
I fractured my hip and after two and a half months, I felt I was strong enough to do Physical Therapy.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?
I was not able to dress myself because I had lost strength on one side.

What would you say to someone who was experiencing pain but skeptical about physical therapy?
It’s easier than what you imagine. I think physical therapy, just the word itself, might be intimidating, especially when you come in after a break. Physical therapy is like exercise… it takes time to become effective. I would definitely recommend physical therapy

Out of all the things that you enjoyed about coming to Preferred Physical Therapy, what did you enjoy the most?
Here I worked with everybody, which I thought gave me good variety in how they approached my particular situation and a different set of eyes. It’s kind of like you have several sets of eyes looking at what your issue is and giving you feedback , versus one.

What were you wanting to achieve and did we help you to achieve it?
​​​​​​​Now through the exercises and the therapy, I’ve been able to get the strength back. I’m at the point where I can go back to normal activity.
