Patient of the Month: January 2013

The minute he walked through the door, we knew LJ was special.

He's focused, hard working and a fierce competitor, but there's not a trace of arrogance to be found. We always love to be inspired by our own patients, especially when they are still in junior high.

We also feel blessed to have gotten to know the entire Castellano family. The warmth, love and respect they have for one another is so rare today. With this kind of support and LJ's own winning spirit, we know his future is bright!

What brought you to PT?

I wrestle on a national level and had a problem with my shoulder. I heard about Iron Physical Therapy and came in to work with Dr. Geno. When I met him, I liked him right away, and he knows how to push me hard.

How have you benefitted from your PT experience ?

I have learned that even though there are problems, if you work hard enough you can find solutions to overcome them.

My shoulder is feeling much stronger, and I am wrestling without any problems.

What would you recommend to someone who has the same injury as you?

Go to Iron because you'll get stronger and be able to compete better.

What activities/goals are you most excited about getting back to?

Wrestling and winning the state title.
