Orthocore’s Patient of the Month for September is Debbie. Debbie came to us with a back injury that caused nerve pain down her leg. “I was unable to sleep at night because of my pain” Debbie explained. We started off by dry needling in various locations on the back and leg and Kristi did manipulation work on significant areas. “In addition to this in-office work, Kristi assigned me ‘homework’ and I also started doing simple stretches and exercises to strengthen my core and muscles. I did this extra work faithfully and it has really helped my back and leg to feel better.” With this improvement Debbie is happy to report that with these improvements, she is back to her old activities. “ I"m able to take walks again without limping and aching and I can perform daily tasks with ease and no pain. I'm even starting to ride my bike again and plan to play golf again.”
While Debbie noticed a slow improvement, things began to get better. “Things took a turn for the better and just kept improving. We adjusted the treatment to include more appropriate and challenging exercises.”
Debbie is very happy to recommend OrthoCore to anyone who may be considering PT. “ I would highly recommend OrthoCore mainly because of the consistent individual attention you receive. You are always under the care of a physical therapist (Kristi or Ian) and not assistants.”
Debbie has been a patient of OrthoCore various times over the years and says that her experiences here are set apart by the connections that she has made here. “OrthoCore is different because you make a connection with your PT and she/he individualizes and adjusts your program to meet your needs. They listen to you each visit. During this time, I also had an MRI which Kristi also reviewed and discussed the results with me. This really helped clarify questions I had.”
Is there one last thought that Debbie has about OrthoCore? “Yes! The entire staff is so friendly and natural with the patients. It's almost like a little family. And Kristi, you're the best!!”
Thank you, Debbie, we are so happy that you got awesome results and appreciate your kind words!
