Giavanna Tartaglia - June 2015

Giavanna Tartaglia - 3DPT June patient of the month!!!

We would like to congratulate Giavanna Tartaglia for being named 3DPT patient of the month. She has worked hard to overcome a concussion she suffered in February and will now be able to continue with her sports this coming fall. Great work Giavanna – it was great having you in the clinic!


3DPT: What was your injury that brought you to therapy?

Giavanna: In late February, I sustained a concussion during a basketball game. The injury was pretty significant. I was kicked in the back of the head after falling down. The concussion has kept me out of play ever since.

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

Giavanna: The biggest thing my concussion affected was my eyesight. My eyes would get very sore and start to blur which caused many, many headaches.

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

Giavanna: It is important to try your hardest. You have to work hard to make progress. Even the boring eye exercises were important for me to concentrate on so that it helped me to get better.

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

Giavanna: The most important thing to me to get over my concussion was to stay positive. Ryan McDevitt along with the rest of the staff constantly said that to me. Once it clicked in my brain it really helped me start to feel better.

3DPT: What sports do you play?

Giavanna: The sports I play are cheerleading and basketball. I will be returning to cheerleading this coming fall for Shawnee High School. This past winter I played basketball for the freshman girls’ team and will continue to play the rest of my time at Shawnee.

3DPT: What are you most looking forward to this summer?

Giavanna: I’m looking forward to getting out of school. The year has been crazy for me with making up all the schoolwork I missed while being out for my concussion. Also, I love going to the shore!

3DPT: What is your favorite TV show and why?

Giavanna: I don’t think I have a specific one. I can sit down and watch anything. Reality shows to sports to drama. I’ll watch it all!
