Patient of the Month
Our patient of the month, John, probably got to know us a little better than he would have liked this year! Just as he was finishing up therapy for one injury, he had an accident that caused him to come back for something completely different!
John was determined to not let it keep him down though! His positive attitude and willingness to do anything asked carried him smoothly into this new phase of rehabilitation. John is an example of how consistency and dedication can bring you back to the life you love, from going up the stairs, to getting out on the green!
Three Words to Describe Me: Stronger Every Day
What brought you to PT? Early this year I was being treated by Dr. Wortman for tennis elbow. Then I had an accident in April and tore my quadriceps tendon off my kneecap. I immediately contacted Dr Wortman - I didn't consider going anywhere else for treatment.
How have you benefitted from PT? I actually look forward to my sessions. Dr. Wortman has been extremely helpful in strengthening my knee and creating flexibility. She has given me confidence to move ahead with my recovery, and I am "ahead of the game" because of her efforts. She is extremely attentive during our sessions and has recently been pushing me hard so that I can get back to normal activities.
What would you recommend to someone who
has the same injury as you? Go directly to IronPT - Dr. Wortman and Dr. Mayes are terrific Physical Therapists! Follow your doctor's advice and do all of your at-home exercises per your physical therapists instructions.
What activities are you most excited about
getting back to? After 4 months I was able to get
back onto the golf course using a golf cart and knee brace, per my doctor's orders. He has been impressed by my progress.
Any new goals now that you are feeling better?
I look forward to walking the golf course and playing without the brace in a month or so.
