Patient Success Stories
“I developed a shin splint related to the brace I was wearing to support my ankle. I couldn't run without significant pain and was devastated thinking that I would not be able to achieve my goal.
I have been to physical therapy before with little confidence in the process and the practitioners. However, Dr. Mayes who is a runner and an athlete, is a different kind of physical therapist who provides specific, personal, and targeted attention. I did not know PTs like him even existed!”
