Quality of Life Renewed
Around the first of March I fell down my porch steps and caught myself,
but twisted my right leg behind me. I couldn’t sleep, walk, sit
or stand without pain. Dr. Loman sent me to Dr. Lemme (MHP FORCE Orthopaedics)
to see if I needed surgery. According to the MRI, I had a tear in my kneecap.
Dr. Lemme wanted to know if I would try physical therapy first. I was
willing because of my experience with MHP SportWorks the year before (I
avoided surgery on my hands and feet).
Back to Patient Stories
After several weeks of therapy I stopped to help my daughter with her
difficult pregnancy. After the birth of her baby, I was still having knee
pain. Dr. Loman sent me to complete my therapy. Now I’m perfectly
well, thanks to the therapy that I received at SportWorks.
Tyler Smith copied exercises for me to take home to do. The pictures and
the explanations made sure that I could repeat the exercises the right
way at home. Tyler is good at encouraging you. Before these two experiences
with SportWorks, I know that I should exercise, but I didn’t. Since
my very first visit, I’ve been doing various kinds of exercises.
Now I know how important it is to exercise every week.
I have been telling everyone how I’ve avoided surgery two times
now by going to SportWorks for therapy. I highly recommend SportWorks
to everyone who I think needs it. I owe a big thanks to SportWorks for
my quality of life. Thanks MHP SportWorks!
