Pain Relief For Arthritis Happy Valley, OR

Thomas B.

I can easily walk over a mile, climb a long flight of stairs, and perform everyday chores with little or no pain.

I went to Ascent Physical Therapy three days after receiving a complete knee replacement to my left knee. Being almost 72, I needed some help to get my range of motion and strength back. I met Patrick and explained how my left knee had been giving me problems for years and that I was bone on bone and finally decided to have a total knee replacement per my surgeon’s recommendations.

I was very pleased with the exercises and stretching techniques Patrick recommended and taught me. Pat guided me on the proper positions and movements to not hurt myself and yet get very good results. I faithfully performed the exercises at home. I will admit, some days were better than others due to the pain and my energy level.

After 12 visits and six weeks of recovery, I can honestly say that I am getting to a point that I can do any activity I want to do. I can easily walk over a mile, climb a long flight of stairs, and perform everyday chores with little or no pain. I will continue to exercise and stretch as recommended because my overall strength is not yet to my desired point, but I am confident it will come over the next few months.

In closing, I was very pleased with Ascent and Dr. Pat Webinger. I highly recommend their services to anyone that has had a knee replacement and wants to recover and get their range of motion and strength back to normal. I will admit at times, it is not easy, you need to be diligent in performing your exercises on a routine basis, but the results are worth every minute.
