I started with PT a year ago with hip pain from a hip replacement (12yr old) and arthritic knees that were stopping me from walking comfortably. Now I can walk my dogs 2-4 miles and still smile. I am part of an intense exercise program and am motivated to keep up special PT exercises. Chris addressed my pain with exercise, stretching at clinic, and orthotics. I was so surprised at how much relief from knee pain that I got from changing the distribution of the weight on my feet. He identified my hip issues and has brought on-going relief by increasing the flexibility of my hip, exercises that strengthen supporting muscles, and giving me methods of keeping my hip in alignment. All of this happened over 2 different sets of PT. The first were easy beginning steps and after about 6 months of exercise on my own I returned for a next level. I feel confident that I can keep moving. I will need to have new knees eventually and I will come back to Chris Cooper and Therapeutic Associates PT for my recovery.
