As all NBA fans know, the first major injury of the 2017-2018 season occurred to star guard of the Boston Celtics, Gordon Hayward. Gordon suffered an ankle fracture 5 minutes and 15 seconds into the start of the season.
Some of the greatest comeback stories never show up in the sport’s section. At Athletico, our physical therapists help people overcome pain and discomfort so they can get back to doing the things they love.
To celebrate National Physical Therapy Month, Athletico is highlighting the positive impact that physical therapists have on people’s lives.
From athletes trying to recover from injury to patients looking to regain mobility post-surgery, physical therapists are key members of the health care process. Not only do they provide patients with the information needed to make a recovery, but they oftentimes act as motivators throughout the process.
