Emilie Boucvalt: How PT Helped Me
As we continue celebrating PT month, we want to highlight another one of our physical therapy superstars: Emilie Boucvalt! Emilie is an active college student, but when knee pain kept her from running she sought out medical care.
Dr. Finstein did surgery on Emilie’s knee to improve her knee alignment and to help her regain function. He recommended physical therapy after surgery and that’s when we met Emilie. Watch her inspiring story!
Emilie’s physical therapy journey has been truly amazing. She hobbled into the BTC clinic on crutches not knowing if she would ever run again. She essentially had to learn how to walk again. Together, we customized a physical therapy program that involved regaining joint mobility and range of motion so that Emilie could reach her goals. Now, she is working on gaining strength, trunk stability, and conditioning to get her back to running. Her goal is to run the 2016 Crescent City Classic.
Emilie’s determination, focus and goal setting is the reason she is making great progress. She truly is a PT Superstar! We can’t wait to see her running soon.
If you or a friend has had knee surgery, or is just starting to have knee pain, call your physical therapist. We turn “bum knees” into old news.
