Outstanding Facility With A Snappy Recovery

I had double knee replacement surgery in June of this year in Fort Collins, Colorado. It has been my preference to have the follow-up therapy in Cheyenne after my release. I spent a few hours “shopping” for the right place that I felt would fit my needs, since I am a senior and was looking for a clinic near my home.  Avenues Therapy Clinic was the second place I visited and I made my decision then and there that it would work out best for me. My son-in-law had been a patient there several years ago after having rotator cuff surgery, and he thought I should “check it out.” I was impressed with the cleanliness of the operation and the friendly and gracious manner in which I was treated. The information I needed to have as a patient was forthcoming so I made my decision that day to do my therapy at Avenues Therapy Clinic.

When unexpected complications necessitated my stay in Colorado to become two weeks instead of four days, I had no difficulty arranging a change in my starting date for my rehab in Cheyenne. Avenues Therapy Clinic management cheerfully accommodated me so that I could begin my treatment the day after I returned to my home.

I feel I was fortunate to have Walynn Smith as my main therapist. His expertise in his field was unmistakable, and I found he has a tremendous amount of patience in dealing with his clients. He challenged me on follow-through points he outlines and has the ability to motivate one to attempt what they might think is impossible. When my progress seemed slow at times and my walking somewhat clumsy, Walynn would have something humorous to say that would snap me back “in shape.” I have to say that during my rehab period, I looked forward to each session and now that I have completed my therapy, I feel more motivated than before to participate in these exercises at home. When Walynn gave me my measurement numbers at our last session and reinforced that they had met the requirements of my surgeon, I was delighted!!! Obviously I was just where I needed to be in recovery.

Choosing Avenues Therapy Clinic was the right decision for me and I would encourage other surgical patients from Cheyenne to consider this outstanding facility for their aftercare.
