OrthoCore introduces our November Patient of the Month: Diane.
Diane came to OrthoCore about four years ago after injuring her back. “I injured my back while playing golf. It became a chronic injury.” After working on and fixing her back injury, Diane began coming to Ian’s weekly golf fitness classes. Since then she has won multiple golf tournaments at Quidnessett and she can deadlift 185lbs for multiple repetitions.
“Ian worked with me not only to treat my back injury but also to address the underlying cause of my pain. I needed help building flexibility and strength to prevent the same injury from recurring and we worked on strengthening and stabilizing my core.
Our clients are assigned homework and Diane was no exception. “In addition to treatments at Orthocore I was given a number of stretches to do daily, and especially before playing golf or tennis. I’ve worked these stretches into my morning routine.”
Since working with us, Diane has not experienced any back pain. “I have been able to play golf and tennis pain free. I can do a lot more since my treatment, too. Not only has my back pain been alleviated, but I have been able to increase my workout routine to include High Intensity Interval Training several times a week. In addition, I attend a weekly workout with Ian that includes golf specific exercises that have measurably improved my golf game.”
Diane wants anyone who is considering physical therapy at OrthoCore to know that everything has been a positive experience, from the visits to making appointments. “OrthoCore and Ian’s expertise, professionalism and attention to detail are the best. His TPI certification and passion for golf allow him to specialize and yet, he continues to use a holistic approach that is beneficial overall. The most enjoyable aspect of OrthoCore, Ian gets to know people well enough that he helps make pushing yourself beyond what you could normally do both possible and enjoyable.”
Thank you, Diane! We enjoyed working with you and appreciate you being our Patient of The Month!
