If you ever wonder why weekend football games can be dangerous I can tell you why. It was just flag football, but it was muddy and I twisted my knee. As it turns out, the twist was not the real problem, it was the guys who fell on me. I tore my MCL and ACL. I am a postal carrier so you can imagine how panicked I was. I met Kevin through a referral from my orthopedic surgeon. Kevin helped me through some painful times early on but as we progressed, the pain subsided and he started helping me with strength and flexibility. It was like having a personal trainer. Kevin’s background in Athletic Training gives him what I feel is a special edge beyond just Physical Therapist. Kevin Rocks!Jimmy
After my skiing accident which left my mcl in shreds, Dennis worked with me several times a week to get me back on skis. I was stronger than before my injury and I can ski for longer now. Thanks Dennis!Angela
