Patricia’s Story

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

It was a couple of months I was going to my podiatrist and he said I needed to go to physical therapy.

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

I was experiencing a lot of foot pain and it started to go up to my ankle and leg. It was very painful, even to walk.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?

Not much, I just pushed through it.

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

I would tell them that this is a place to come and it is not overcrowded. You get a really good one on one attention and everyone here is awesome.

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

I enjoyed that I was getting better and that everybody was so nice. It made you feel good and you didn’t have to dread coming in.

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

I was wanting to get rid of a lot of the pain. That has pretty much all gone away, I just have arthritis but that has gotten better also.
