I can now ride my motorcycle without fear of balance issues.
When I was sent to therapy by my doctor, my balance was so bad I could not stand up to put my pants on, I had to lie on my bed because I would lose my balance and fall. I also was unable to ride my motorcycle because of my balance issues. Following therapy, I can now stand in the middle of the floor and put my pants on, and even ride my motorcycle without fear of balance issues.

I had the people in my foursome calling me a liar, saying there is no way you just had a total knee.
I had a total knee replacement at the end of May. Going through therapy at LaFree, I am golfing in my golf league by the end of June. I even shot well enough, I had the people in my foursome calling me a liar, saying there is no way you just had a total knee.

I am so grateful I can return to doing what I love.
I had a rotator cuff repair in January and was worried I would not be able to ride my motorcycle this summer. Riding is the thing I enjoy doing most with the nice weather coming up. I was able to get my bike out and ride for over 30 miles with no pain or difficulty. I am so grateful I can return to doing what I love.

After completing my therapy, I was able to return to work without restrictions.
I had been off work for 6+ months with low back issues. I had sought different types of care including medications and chiropractic care with little to no improvement. I was seen for physical therapy at LaFree with notable changes within the first week. After completing my therapy, I was able to return to work without restrictions.

I can walk with my friends again without pain or limitations.
I was walking 2-3 miles a day with a group of friends, however, I developed low back pain with pain radiating into my right leg that made it painful to walk more than a block with excruciating pain. After completing therapy with exercises and other treatments, I can walk with my friends again without pain or limitations.

I have now returned to full duty work without limitations.
I was really scared to move my shoulder when I was first sent to therapy. However, was sent to get full motion back in my shoulder before I could undergo surgery. The staff was very encouraging and worked with me both physically and emotionally to get motion back to normal to allow me to have surgery. After surgery, they worked with me to return to normal activities at home and work. I have now returned to full duty work without limitations.

My pain is now completely gone. I am back to 100%.
I started out with shoulder pain and limited mobility. My pain was up to a 7-8/10. After beginning therapy, I saw progress within a week. I noticed strength and mobility increases very rapidly. My pain is now completely gone. I have also regained full usage of my arm and am stronger than I have been in years. I have had therapy for other issues, at other offices and this was by far my best experience! I am back to 100%.

I am lifting more than before surgery and can participate in normal activities with no pain.
Before physical therapy, I was not able to do much with my shoulder as the injury was to my dominant arm. I could only reach height halfway up to my waist and could do nothing overhead or behind my back. The pain level was severe with increased pain with any movement. Currently, post rotator cuff repair, I have full movement in every direction with no pain. I am lifting more than before surgery and can participate in normal activities with no pain.

Enjoying everyday tasks again, with no restrictions or pain. When I came here for therapy, I could not even hold a pen to write. The pain was awful! After working with Shelly, I can now do everything that I was not able to before. I am so grateful for the care I received.

I have gained back my normal movements with no pain and can lift more than before."
I came to therapy after a fall on concrete. I was having trouble moving my arms up and back. I could not lift over 8 pounds completely without pain. After therapy, with a lot of stretching my muscles, I have gained back my normal movements with no pain and can lift more than before.
