Physical therapy helps turn back the age clock
Margie Morton, an active 77 year old, has a new lease on life after her physical therapy and wellness training. Her amazing attitude on aging, along with her determination and hard work, allowed her to return to the activities that she loves pain-free…walking, biking, exercising, tennis and shopping! Here’s how Margie turned back her age clock:
I started experiencing hip pain this year, which resulted from two old car accidents. In both cases, I was rear-ended and suffered disc injuries in my lower spine and upper neck. I’ve always been active for my age, but I began walking with a slight limp so I decided to see hip and back specialist.
My doctor recommended a personal trainer to strengthen my muscles, but I have not had much success with trainers. My husband suggested Baudry Therapy Center where he is currently in therapy for Parkinson’s. He thought a fitness program run by physical therapists would be beneficial.
“The Baudry/BRIO team helped Margie work through the issues, by providing a pathway for success. And then all it took was the belief, hope and determination to get back on track,” said Rich Baudry.
Margie’s Physical Therapy and Wellness Results
After receiving manual therapy from the Baudry Therapy team, my limp was gone and my hip pain was much better. I increased the strength in my leg and no longer needed to push to rise out of a chair. Stairs are now a piece of cake.
My walks have even improved and I feel great after my hour-long workout. I can even shop the rest of the day! Not sure if my husband is totally happy with that!
I’ve lost a few pounds but I’ve lost significant inches in my core which has improved my posture. I’ve had to go down two dress sizes. I feel better, look better and my pain level is much improved.
A New Outlook on Life
I began to accept that being out of shape and in pain was part of getting older, but Baudry sure changed my outlook. I feel confident about the exercise they suggest. Baudry therapists constantly assess your body and your progress. The facility is modern and and very well kept. I have recommended them to all my friends and several have joined. Everyone there is very helpful and friendly, from the receptionist to the therapists.
A Baudry | BRIO Champion
When asked about Margie’s PT success, Rich Baudry said, “Margie’s physical therapy and fitness program was built with her felt needs and desires in mind. Her success has been based on her trust in the team, and her willingness to put in the work. So often people give up on the things they love because of aches and pains they wrongly assume they will just have to live with. And many times the medical advice they receive squanders hope and falls short of solving the problem. But through education, guidance, and commitment, there is always the potential to get better. Margie sure proved that, another Baudry/BRIO champion! We are proud of her efforts and love that she is able to again enjoy the things she loves.”
