Crossfit Patient Makes PT Homework A Fun (& Delicious) Task

Meet Jason, our latest patient of the month!

When life handed him lemons (and back surgery), he made lemonade! After surgery, he was told to take regular walks. Instead of making it something laborious, he made it fun by walking to Starbucks everyday to try out a different drink ! 

This dedicated gentleman moved through physical therapy without ever missing an appointment. His perfect attendance and hard work helped propel him successfully through rehab! 

Watch out, because he's getting back to his favorite workout move, the burpee!

~ Dr. Marnie Wortman, DPT
