Getting Your Life Back With Physical Therapy

by: Dr. James Pumarada

During this season of giving, the greatest thing that we, as Physical Therapists, are able to give to our patients is the ability to get their own life back.  When we get hurt or have to go through some sort of physical issues, it can feel like a piece of our lives is being taken away from us.  This is certainly how a lot of our patients feel when they first come in to our clinic.

In Jesus' case, he was unable to work for months after sustaining two patellar tendon ruptures, requiring major surgery to both knees.  Out of work and unable to walk without assistance, he came in to our clinic looking to get back to good health so that he can get back to his life.  After Physical Therapy with us, I'm happy to report that he now has his life back and is ready to get back to it.  He is truly a shining of example that with our team and hard work, you can be on your feet in no time!

Therapy got me from walking with 2 canes to running; from walking at half my body weight to leg pressing 300 lbs with both my legs. Thanks to my therapists and my hard work I’m returning to work with no restrictions.
The professional & friendly staff are so knowledgeable and worked with me every step of the way.
Thank you to everyone at Complete Physical Rehabilitation for everything! There is no way I could’ve done this without you!
