Patient of the Month – March 2013
Name: Jerily C. (we affectionately refer to her as JC)
JC is the most COMPLIANT patient in the history of IronPT. She came in with fierce foot pain that had been wearing her down for months, but made up her mind that she was ready to fight back. She would do every single thing that was recommended and even did extra “homework” to be sure she was getting the most out of therapy.
She is still working hard towards full recovery, but it has been a privilege to be part of her journey. She’s not only determined, but also artistic, and we’re looking forward to having her put her touch on our clinic walls.
Wish we could clone her!
In her own words….
Three words that describe me: curious, energetic and scrappy
What brought you to PT?
I had chronic heel PAIN that required surgery and needed post-surgical PT.
My Podiatrist recommended finding a Physical Therapist who practiced the Graston Technique – with the warning that it would be painful. I’d never heard of it, so I googled it. Reading about it sounded just as painful as I’d been told, but I thought I’d give it a try.
How have you benefitted from your PT experience (physically or mentally)? PT with Dr. Mayes had given me hope that one day soon I’ll be pain free.
What would you recommend to someone who has the same injury as you? Patience! Results come even though progress seems slow.
What activities are you most excited about getting back to? I want to run. I understand I’ll need to walk first, and build up slowly. Looking forward to my continued progress.
