When I first came to PT, I remember my knee being very swollen. I had a hard time with the bike riding and the heel downs were nearly impossible for me to do. I’ve come such a long way since me beginning here. 20 heel downs and I’ve doubled my weight in my leg exercises. Swelling is almost nonexistent and pain is virtually gone. Thank you!

I strained my hamstring running, and was unable to run, bike, or engage in many of my other hobbies. The Power PT team has helped me recover quickly, as well as helping me ramp back up at a safe but fast rate.
I had injured my calf training for a half marathon when I came in. I had taken a week off thinking it would simply go away, but when it didn’t I decided to seek help. Dr. Mark diagnosed a calf strain and through different exercises, stretches, and massages, I was able to slowly recover. While I wasn’t able to run the half marathon by precaution because I was only 5-6 weeks away from the injury, I did run my fastest 5k without any pain or re-injury.
Before coming to Power Physical Therapy, I had so many injuries. For 2 years, I had knee tears and pain on my right side. My athletic trainer told me to come here and strengthen my knee for the next season. At first, I was a bit afraid of going to a new place and meeting new people whom I would have to be vulnerable with on my injury. However, when I arrived, everyone was so thoughtful, empathetic, and supportive; they cheered me on with my successes and assisted me during hardships.
I appreciate the professionalism of the staff and their patience with my treatment. I could not ride my bike before treatment and now I can. Riding the bike is critical to my recovery. I am very proud of my new knee and could not have gotten to use it properly if it were not for Power PT.
After my knee injury, I could not do any of the activities I enjoyed. Power PT helped me get back on track and start biking, running, and hiking!
