Regina’s Story

How long did you wait before deciding on physical therapy and what was the obstacle?
Probably six months I was in pain from throwing the softball and stuff. I thought it would go away on its own but it didn’t. Then, I finally came in (to PPT) and it went away.

What was and how bad was your problem prior to receiving physical therapy?
Washing my hair was hard because of lifting up. Sleeping in certain positions and then lifting things above me, throwing, so softball was really hard. It would ‘shock’ me. I’d lift up and immediately have to pull down (from the pain). It would hurt.

What would you say to someone who was experiencing pain but skeptical about physical therapy?
Physical Therapy is not hard. It’s not like a sport that you have to get used to. It’s just easy activities that help with your pain.

Out of all the things that you enjoyed about coming to Preferred Physical Therapy, what did you enjoy the most?
It was more welcoming. Everyone was very talkative and nice. They really helped explain everything. They made it really clear what we were doing. They all had something else to say, something to make it easier, like, “do this instead…” It helps. They are all helpful.

What were you wanting to achieve and did we help you to achieve it?
If I could just get my arm going in a full circle, then I was going to be happy because that’s pretty much what I needed. Now I can do anything. It’s really easy. I have no pain anymore.
