SUCCESS STORIES AT ANDREW PHYSICAL THERAPY
This section is dedicated to you! Physical Therapist John Andrew loves his job because each day he is inspired by people who work so hard to get back to doing the things that they love. This ranges from work to recreational activities. It is John's hope that this section helps to motivate and inspire you to get back to the activities you love, too!
BACK ON THE WATER
This local dentist does more than work on teeth! During the week he can help keep his patients smiling, but on the weekends this Doctor of Dentistry can be found slicing and dicing the water behind a ski boat!
Due to a shoulder injury, the doctor was unable to water ski. With a properly structured rehabilation program and a lot of hard work, he was able to return to his passion on the water.
RETURN TO THE MAT
Alec Ortiz underwent ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) knee surgery which could have slowed him down. But with the proper rehab program and a lot of hard work, he made a great recovery.
Post recovery, Alec consistently ranked in the top wrestling standings in not only Oregon, but also at the national level. Alec was able to go on to achieve even greater success after his injury! Way to go Alec!
FULLBACK IS BACK
You would never know by looking at the photo (at right) that the young man carrying the ball, mowing over his opponents, had to recover from a shoulder injury to play in his remaining championship games.
A commitment by the player along with help from the staff at Andrew Physical Therapy got this fullback back where he belongs: on the field!
