I was more than fortunate to have Summer as my physical therapist.
She is exceptionally knowledgeable, professional and her encouragement were vital to my recovery process to gain strength, balance and flexibility. Her proposed exercise regimen was easy to follow and led to my complete recovery. As my therapist, she was empathetic to my frustrations. That empathy coupled with her patience, good listening skills, and advice helped me get through my struggles and the rough patches that helped ease the pain from both TKA(total knee arthroplasty), bilateral hip replacements and the Brostrom procedure ankle reconstruction surgery. Every session I got stronger, more flexible with a much better ROM(range of motion) which left me feeling more hopeful and motivated. She provided me with the tools I needed to continue with my recovery on my own. Her concern for my recovery was supportive and genuine. She definitely had a tremendous impact on my recovery and success.
I have seen Summer numerous times over the past 12 years. I had polio at the age of two. With a deformed and shorter left leg, it has taken it's toll. These issues caused severe spine and nerve issues. Summer is able to take her time and skills to evaluate what is the best plan of care for me. At one point, the pain was so back I couldn't bear weight and with her expertise she was able to get me back walking when I feared the worst! She is amazing, caring, kind, and so knowledgeable in her field. I am forever grateful for having her as my physical therapist!
Summer worked with me on my back. I have bulging disks and Summer taught me how to stretch and strengthen my back. She was professional and caring throughout my visits with her. Summer took her time to listen and understand my concerns and also my goals.
