After sustaining a fractured Ulna from an accidental fall, I was emotionally shaken, fearful, and in severe pain. I was referred to Athletico from my PCP, and I read reviews online which gave the Mesa East facility 5 stars. Valerie was my primary therapist. After each visit, I gained more mobility with my arm, gained encouragement, and slowly overcame the fear to just walk. Valerie has a cheerful and compassionate personality. I never felt pained by treatment, as some people warned. I looked forward to every physical therapy appointment and felt improvement after each treatment.
Athletico has helped my ability to straighten and bend my elbow to full range; the ability to strengthen my wrist and straighten my wrist; an understanding of results from my injury and how tissue shortens when immobile; and the courage to build muscle strength.
