Rudy’s Story

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

For about 6 months, I waited because I thought it would take care of itself.

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

It was pretty severe. The fact that I couldn’t reach my arm out without pain, I thought I shouldn’t live with this pain.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?

It stopped me from hiking such as using my polls. I was in constant pain even cleaning the house I couldn’t do it.

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

Don’t wait like me, just do it.

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