When Johnny broke his heel bone after falling off a ladder and had to receive surgery, he came to DOAR East for physical therapy. Johnny has been working with Joey Scearce, MPT, Cindi Mathena, PTA, and Raegan Clark, ATC. He compliments the staff and the environment, saying “They are mighty good… the knowledge and experience — they know what they’re doing.” Johnny also enjoys the convenience of DOAR East. Since he can’t drive and has to have someone bring him in, the fact that DOAR East is close to where he lives matters a lot to him.
Johnny couldn’t move his ankle three weeks ago, but he says that he has 50% of his movement back after working with the staff at DOAR East. He had never had therapy before and wasn’t sure what to expect, but he has learned a lot. New exercises are added as he progresses. He can do the marbles now, which he couldn’t do at all when he started, and he does stretching with the theraband. Johnny is using a walker and going back to work. He also has a whole lot of yardwork to do with 5 acres of grass to cut. We wish you the best of luck with all that yardwork, Johnny!
