Last year on July 1, 2017, I was walking too fast, twisted my ankle & fell. I went to the ER, was told I broke my left arm at the top. I was put in a sling, prescribed Tylenol #2 and sent home.
The pain was horrible; the pain meds were causing side effects, but not helping with the pain. I quit taking them. I tried other pain medicine and nothing worked, I just went without.
After my six weeks, I started physical therapy, Mary Drost took care of me Mary noticed where I was having the most pain and it was not from the break. She had recommended to my orthopedic doctor to order an MRI. It came back that I also had a torn Rotator cup, and my arm was also broken in two places. That explained the horrible pain I had. I thank god that Mary’s knowledge of the body, knew I had other injuries. My therapy stopped until after my surgery.
Mary Drost used a technique called “Dry Needling”, a procedure that does not hurt, and the effects are unbelievable. It takes away the pain and spasms. I highly recommend this procedure, I am still pain free.
The experience I take away from this is wonderful, Victoria Physical Therapy really take care for their patients. The whole staff treats you like family, and you will miss them when you have completed your therapy.
