Richard’s Story

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

Probably around 6 months. I waited because it was my second time coming here so I was unsure about insurance.

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

Achiness and limitations on the movement of my arm. It was interfering with my activities and daily living and work.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?

Interfering with daily life

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

It’s not as scary as people think, yes there can be some pain but with that comes healing and strength.

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

I enjoyed the staff. They are always friendly and will do whatever is necessary in order for you to heal.

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

I wanted to increase the strength of my arm and shoulder and move with little pain. Yes, I still have certain limitations but that just goes with my injury. I am now relatively pain-free and have strengthened my arm with directions on how to increase it.
