Our Patient Shout-Out this week goes to Axel from Flourtown!
Axel is one of our veteran patients! He started coming to WNPT Flourtown in June 2016 after falling at a construction site. Because of the fall, he had to have surgery for a labral tear and deep tissue groin tear. After the surgery, he had been walking with a limp for about a year. Finally, after a year of hard work, he has days without a limp, thank to his hard work in PT with the guidance of our therapist, Sean.
Axel says, "The hardest exercises to do are those to strengthen my abductor muscles along with side and front planks. But, because I am stronger, I have gone from doing 1 or 2 side planks, to now 5 with different variations and 10 front planks with variations." Axel loves coming to WNPT because of the fun times he has here joking with everyone. Everyone has a great sense of humor. "Sean is a great therapist!" Great job, Axel!
Keep up the good work! #shoutout #physicaltherapy #philly #wnpt
