February 2015 - Katie Smith

3DPT ANNOUNCES KATIE SMITH AS FEBRUARY PATIENT OF THE MONTH

Katie Smith heard the 3 dreaded letters that no one wants to hear from the orthopedic doctor – ACL. She knew she was going to have to go through the surgery to be able to get back to doing everything she loves in life; skiing, running, work and basically anything that involves a mobile human. Katie has dedicated herself to her physical therapy following the surgery and is on her way to a full recovery and a fully pain-free knee. Congratulations to Katie – everyone at 3DPT appreciates your hard work and thanks you for brightening up the clinic each time you come in!

3DPT: Tell us how you sustained your ACL injury.

KATIE: I was skiing a double black diamond in Lake Tahoe and my ski got stuck on some “Sierra Cement” during a turn. Once I was down I knew that something was very, very wrong.

3DPT: How did you choose where you would do your physical therapy?

KATIE: I shopped around and went with 3DPT because of their amazing culture, warm atmosphere and fantastic staff.

3DPT: Have there been any points in your therapy that have been especially difficult?

KATIE: Running and getting my full range of motion back has been difficult. Luckily, with the help of everyone at 3DPT I’m getting back to my old self!

3DPT: What are you most looking forward to doing once your knee is ready?

KATIE: My goal as of now is to be able to go horseback riding in June in North Carolina.

3DPT: What have you liked most about coming to physical therapy at 3DPT?

KATIE: The amazing staff makes going to physical therapy a treat. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and team to help in my rehabilitation.

3DPT: What is your ideal dinner during the winter?

KATIE: I’d have to say cheese lasagna with meatballs and sausage on the side. Extra gravy!

3DPT: You work for Marriott – where is your ideal place for a 1 week vacation and what would you do?

KATIE: A good Napa trip with all of my friends would be amazing. Great wine and food coupled with the beauty of Northern California, in such a relaxing environment, would be the perfect escape.
