Back From Injury Just in Time for College Football (POM 7/14)

Patient of the Month - July 2014



Meet Malik, a talented Defensive Back at American International College! It's been exciting to see how his focus and fierce determination have quickly brought him back from a hamstring injury just in time for the upcoming football season. 

Malik was like a tornado of energy, agility and drive when he came in each day. The floor would actually shake as he attacked each and every exercise. 

It was exciting to see a patient approach his rehab with such intensity, respect and purpose. Having him in the clinic was a great reminder of what can happen when we engage and turn up the dial in our own lives.

Best wishes for an amazing season, Malik!! 

In his own words...



Three words to describe you: Determined, Intuitive, Steadfast 

What brought you to PT?  My mother was referred by a coworker after I pulled my hamstring working out earlier this summer.

How have you benefited from your PT experience?  Physically I've healed completely from my injury and am in great shape and more than ready to return to school for the 2014 football season.

What would you recommend to someone who has the same injury as you?  I would recommend that they properly tend to the injury as soon as possible and not to let it linger to prevent in from happening again like I did.  When I mean properly tend I mean go to Iron PT ASAP !

What activities are you most excited about getting back too?  I'm really excited to start football camp in about a week.  Personal goals for me would be to stay healthy the whole season and to make an all-conference team this year.  The ultimate team goal would be to win the Division II Football National Championship.
