William’s Story

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

Two weeks because I went to a back surgeon first and he decided he could not do anything for me.

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

Pain in my lower left leg and it was the worst I’ve ever had in my lower left leg.

What was your pain preventing you from doing?

It was tricky getting in and out of the shower and stepping up and down on things. But now it is basically normal.

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

To come here and to stay away from surgeons.

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

They are really nice people here, I don’t really like PT but I didn’t mind it because of the people here.

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

Being able to walk again without a walker so yes.
