Because we love what we do and who we work with, at Complete Game PT we’ve decided to feature a Patient of the Month each month. May’s Patient of the Month is Jaryd.
Jaryd came to Complete Game after tearing his ACL for the third time in three years. He’s currently working on strengthening his left knee and leg following his last surgery in August of 2016. Jaryd really enjoys his treatment plan at Complete Game. When he comes in, he starts on the stationary bike for a ten minute warm up. “Greg will then stretch my leg and give me a knee massage (which I highly recommend!) Then, Greg will show me a series of exercises that I will need to complete. We are usually really focusing on my left knee and exercises to strengthen that leg. Lots of squats, lunges, and bridges. We end will an ice bath in the game ready ice machine. (Another one of my favorites!)”
Of course, as every physical therapy patient knows, Jaryd has regular PT “homework.” Jaryd works independently at home on the exercises that Greg showed him during his visit, and does the exercises every other day. “My most important homework is not to re-tear my ACL!” Jaryd jokes.
He has definitely noticed a difference since working with Greg. “My discomfort has decreased over the past few months with my visits to Greg. Every scheduled PT visit Greg will increase the workload to a tolerable limit. I’m even (slowly) getting back to playing tennis and running.”
“You need to do your PT with Greg at Complete Game,” Jaryd advocates. “Greg will give you his all to make sure you receive the proper care to get back to your 100% - whether it’s getting you back to playing sports or getting you back to being pain-free.” In fact, Jaryd has enjoyed working with Greg so much that he has followed Greg from his old practice to Complete Game. “I got to know Greg at his former practice. He was my PT after my second ACL surgery, and I have loved working with him so much that I followed him up to Tewksbury and to Complete Game PT. Complete Game is different from other practices because you get a one-on-one experience in a small setting with Greg solely focused on you. I have loved my experience at Complete Game PT!”
