What first brought you to Patterson PT?
Q&A with Patterson PT client : Marilyn Raynor
I was having pain in my neck and my lower back, so my pain management doctor recommended me to Patterson PT.
What are you up to now?
I am currently a secretary for several church organizations, so I need to be able to sit at the computer to do work for several hours a day which is something I had trouble with before Patterson PT. I also take care of a family member who has cancer, so getting in and out of the car is something that I can do much better after therapy. Lastly, I am a grandmother and love spending time with my grandchildren.
How did Patterson PT help get you to where you are now?
Before I came for physical therapy, I was in a lot of pain and I wasn't able to sit at the computer for a long time to do my work. Patterson PT taught me how best to get up and move in order to keep my back and neck pain from returning. I also experienced Aquatic Therapy for the first time here and it was excellent. Being in the water really loosened up my muscles and gave me more mobility.
What is your favorite thing about coming to Patterson PT?
I like the location because it is easy to get to, but I really like the people. I just like being there because everyone is so friendly. I have been to other PT places in the past where they rush me through my session, but at Patterson PT everyone took their time to explain things to me and then even gave me brochures and things to take home with me to make sure I was doing exercises correctly at home.
Can you tell us more about Aquatic Physical Therapy?
I had never experienced anything like Aquatic Physical Therapy before. I do not know how to swim, but Randi was very good at talking me through it and letting me know that if anything was uncomfortable we could stop. I really felt like the instructors truly had my best interest at heart. The therapy was excellent and I found it gave me more mobility. I am definitely continuing with the Aqua Fit program now that I have been discharged from physical therapy.
