Paul’s Story

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

I had knee issues prior to my accident but that really triggered me to come in. I was immobilized for 2 months after my surgery.

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

I was experiencing weakness in my quads and legs and pain in my knees.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?

I couldn’t do much besides sit and try to walk.

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

I would say it is very helpful. Especially at Preferred Physical Therapy the people are so kind and confident and work at a pace you are able to work at, it was a great help.

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

The friendliness of the staff and they say your name every time you come in. I love to have laughter and teasing while working together.

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

My goal was to get back to where I was before so I could walk, run, and hike. I am able to do most things I am wanting to do and think about my knee less.
