Stuart Brooks - April 2015

3DPT NAMES STUART BROOKS PATIENT OF THE MONTH FOR APRIL 2015

When Stuart Brooks walked into 3DPT a few months ago, he had been told by a surgeon that he was destined for surgery due to a herniated disc in his lower back. Stuart was skeptical about physical therapy being able to help his condition. Fast forward to today – after working with his therapist Joey Strazzullo, Stuart is feeling great and the thought of surgery has left his mind. Congratulations Stuart – you put in the hard work and it has paid off!

3DPT: What was your injury that brought you to therapy and how significant was it?

STUART: I had a herniated disc which hurt when I moved almost any way. Tying shoe laces, lifting even small objects – all of my everyday tasks had become very uncomfortable adventures.

3DPT: What were your greatest challenges you encountered during physical therapy?

STUART: I knew that I had a serious injury. I found myself wanting to do more and more and expected my body to recover more quickly than my body was capable of. Also, I found myself constantly wondering how this would all work out. I was resigned to the fact that I was going to need surgery.

3DPT: What do you find most important in order to have a successful outcome in physical therapy?

STUART: Being under the care of one excellent therapist who was able to answer my questions and listen to my specific needs as a patient. Joey helped me to establish a routine of well selected exercises and gave me the encouragement to do them correctly and consistently. I don’t exactly understand how my herniated disc got better, but the bottom line is that I feel great and I am grateful for the help that I received from Joey.

3DPT: What is most important to you in terms of having a good experience in physical therapy?

STUART: My experience with 3DPT was great – everyone in the office was warm, knowledgeable and empathetic. They were dedicated to providing a good experience. From top to bottom, they were always there with a good sense of humor and a strong dose of commitment.

3DPT: What are some of your interests and hobbies?

STUART:

  • Gardening – I look forward to doing this now that my back is feeling good.
  • Alligator wrestling –just the small ones.
