Outpatient orthopedic physical therapist. I see everything from neck and back pain to knee/shoulder/and ankle reconstructions. If only my schedule allowed for more golf during the week

I had both knees replaced at the same time abut 6 years ago.  Stayed in a in patient rehabilitation center connected to the hospital for 8 days after surgery, the PT 3 times a day was brutal, but I actually looked forward to it and worked hard at it.   The worst part was the first day when they took my baseline of range of motion and while on my stomach bent me knee toward my back as far as they could.   Yowza!!  That hurt 🙂

When, I left there 8 days later, they wheeled me out in a wheelchair, with a walker and  a cane they said I could move to probably within a week.  I never touched the walker, and carried the cane with me in the car--Just in case.   I continued 3 times a week outpatient PT at the same facility.   

When I walked into my surgeons office without any aids and no limp or noticeable discomfort, 4 weeks later he was smiling ear to ear.  He said that was a welcome site and could tell I had followed PT instructions.   As he sees so many at the 4 week mark, still using  the walker and some even the wheelchair and limping.    He said it's obvious they did not put in the work.

As you do I'm sure, my PT asked me on the first day what my goal was.  I said to be able to play golf pain free.   The surgery was on Oct 14 and I graduated PT on Dec 30.  My "final exam" was swinging a golf club in their simulator, and after a few 50% swings taking a few 100% swings and being able to do it!

Sorry for the long post, but just wanted you and other PT's to get the shout out and recognition you deserve.

After I had my left knee done in 2014, the surgeon came in and said that if I had waited any longer, he would have had to do a bone graft.  I have a scar where I had cartilage taken out the old fashioned way in 1971.

One of my last rounds of golf before the replacement was the first time that my wife beat me for 18 holes.  Getting to my lead side was painful, and I constantly fell back on my right foot.

I have not had anything like this (knock on wood) but my Dad has gone through back, knee, and rotator cuff surgeries.  He has always been diligent with the regimen that the PT had provided and he has always recovered very well.  2nd CG2's comments.

Didn't realize this thread was here, should browse the forums more often. In light of the current climate all I will say is I am a LEO with DHS. Crazy times we live in, but I'm proud of what I do and i hope in 4 years I can still say the same. [emoji61]

Veteran, U.S. Navy 98-06. Moved on from that to a career in the offshore oil industry as an ROV Pilot (Google it) retiring in 2016 at 38. We moved from Florida to NYC for my wifes career (and her hometown), and I got bored. So, I went back to work. I'm now an Operations Manager for one of the largest raw building materials companies in the world.

I am an engineer at the largest  semi-conductor company in the US although I hope my title changes for the better sooner as I don't know how much longer I can last (5 years here has aged me about 10-15)
