Stand, Walk, Get In/Out of Car Without Pain

When I first came to Avenues Therapy Clinic, I could not stand for longer than 15 minutes without extreme pain in my lower back, accompanied with breath-taking muscle aches in my upper and middle back. Getting up out of bed and off sofas and chairs was extremely difficult. My lower spine, groin area, and muscles and tendons in my upper right leg were very painful and causing me not to be able to move my leg without pain or stiffness. There was a time I could hardly turn over in bed without extreme pain in my spine. I could no longer walk with a normal gait due to all the pain in my spine and right leg. Getting in and out of vehicles was very difficult.

Since coming here, I have definitely regained more mobility in my leg and although it is still a little painful in my groin, I am able to tolerate longer periods of time standing and walking. I can turn over in bed much better, and getting in and out of vehicles has improved.

With the exercises and workouts Kelsey and Kim have shown me, I am able to continue strengthening my spine and leg at home. I believe my range of motion in my right leg has improved and hopefully after leaving their care I will continue to improve. I thank and commend them for their patience and expertise in the field of physical therapy, and their caring efforts to address my every issue. They listen to my concerns and address each of them.

The atmosphere at Avenues is very welcoming, and the interactions with the patients and therapists are open and fun, making the experience and workout something to look forward to. Even though some pain could be associated with the therapy, you work through it in no time with their relaxed, caring personalities.

I will recommend this clinic to everyone who needs therapy, as it is a very professional clinic with caring therapists. I’m going to miss the interactions with these fine people.
