Nancy’s Story

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

I waited probably about a couple of months. I waited because I thought I could stretch it out or wait it out. I didn’t really know what to do until I went to my doctors and they recommended physical therapy.

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

It really started over a year ago and it’s been a couple of things. I had pain in my left leg and wasn’t able to walk, hike or golf without pain. It felt like I couldn’t live life the way I wanted.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?

It was preventing me from living the life I wanted and I was unable to walk hike or golf without pain.

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

I would say don’t wait until it gets worse. You can fix things and be on your way to feeling better.

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

I enjoyed how welcoming and friendly everyone is. I got to see several physical therapists and they are all very knowledgeable.

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

I wanted to achieve to get back to the activities I wanted to do. As I get older I want to stay active and learned that moving your body is very important. Yes, you guys helped me to achieve my goal. I felt like I was very much listened to and how I felt was being taken into account, I felt listened to.
