Since starting physical therapy in the inpatient setting several months ago, Terry has made a lot of progress! He is currently continuing his journey to recovery at Martinsville Physical Therapy, where he works with Mike McClellan, MPT and Tim Armstrong, LPTA. Here is Terry’s story, in his own words:
I broke my heel bone and my femur, and crushed two vertebrae. I started with physical therapy as an inpatient, then in the nursing home, and then I had home therapy because I wasn’t that mobile. Since the doctor told me to go to outpatient physical therapy, I have gone from a wheelchair to a walker to a cane. When I was in the walker, I could make it around the house, but most of the time I was in the wheelchair. I just switched to my cane last week, and also just got out of the foot boot and body cast.
The staff at [Martinsville Physical Therapy] has been good to me. They push me, but they know I have limitations. They’re good about reading people, and they know that rehab is different for each person.
I come to physical therapy because I want to get the best I can. My goal is to get back to work as soon as possible. I’m not one to sit around!
