For months I had been having pain in my left knee when bending it or climbing stairs, then gradually growing into constant pain, so I decided to have Mark Slaughter at FYZICAL Therapy and Balance Center check out the issue. I chose Mark after hearing different friends recommend him from experiences they had after therapy from their injuries and knee replacement surgeries. They were pleased with his knowledge, compassion and concern to get them back to a better quality of life. Mark evaluated my range of motion and pain level and suggested I see an orthopedist. I followed his advice, had arthroscopic surgery a few weeks later to correct the problem and was told I would need about 6 weeks of therapy at the therapist of my choice. Of course, I returned to FYZICAL Therapy and Balance Center. Not only was I able to be pain free but I am also able to keep up with my 4 young grandchildren, running, jumping on the trampoline with them and roller skating. Through Mark and his staff I also learned better posture and proper movements to ease the stress on joints. And they made it FUN too!!!!
