BayState_Relieving Hip, Knee and Leg Pain


Patient Success Spotlight

Dave has been coping with right knee pain since 2003. He underwent a traditional arthroscopic procedure then experienced multiple meniscus tears and rapid cartilage breakdown. He had additional right knee arthroscopic procedures in the years that followed with the hope of prolonging the inevitable. In 2011, Dave began receiving cortisone injections to help with the pain and as each year passed, the relief from the injections decreased, finally having little to no impact at all. With the help of his wife, Dave made the decision to have a total knee replacement in December of 2018. Fast forward to eight weeks post-surgery, Dave was able to walk up and down stairs and go for walks with his family without pain - something he did not believe could be possible so soon after surgery. After receiving at-home PhysicalTherapy, Dave’s Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Fehm (ExcelOrthopedics inWoburn,MA) referredhim toBayStatePhysical Therapy - Burlington. “The physical therapist’s care and techniques have given me more strength and range of motion then I’ve had in the last 10 years!... I am thankful for the decision to have the surgery and for the care I received at Bay State Physical Therapy Burlington. It has allowed me to be active again with my family, including my four young children. When I am not working, I like to be involved coaching my kids sporting teams and hitting the pool with the family.” Dave Pennybaker Right Total Knee Replacement

A healthy take on a Shamrock Shake uses fresh spinach and juicy kiwi to achieve the fun and festive color we all love. Using fresh mint makes this smoothie extra minty and refreshing. Combine banana, spinach, yogurt, kiwi, milk, mint and ice in a blender. Blend until smooth. If you like, cut kiwi slices into shamrock shapes and thread onto a skewer. Serve the smoothie garnished with the kiwi and mint, if desired Preparation
