Health &Wellness The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body

FOR BEING PART OF OUR FAMILY A Message From Dr. Kim A. Contryman

Today is the deadline for me to get our next newsletter in for May. For some reason, I’ve been struggling with this over the past few weeks. It just doesn’t seem right that we put together the same newsletter that we have over the past months. I just have had this feeling that I needed to write something different. Now, I know. Over the past several weeks, we have had a lot going on—not just here in TN or the US—but the world. I know that all of us have been hit, and it has really changed our lives. I have had a lot more time on my hands lately, and I’m not so sure that’s such a bad thing—BECAUSE it has allowed me to reflect on the past 18 years of my life. Those 18 years have been the life of our clinic: Blue Ridge Physical Therapy, Inc. Kevin and I have been blessed to have met so many of you and, hopefully, help you through physical therapy. I love physical therapy and, believe it or not, am still excited every morning when I get up to go to work. Not many people can say this, and I realize that I am one of the lucky few. I cannot put words into how I feel about being able to work in a field that I am so passionate about and to have my family right there by my side. My kids have

grown up in the clinic and have met many of you. They are becoming caring, compassionate, good people, and I now know why. With all this extra time I have had on my hands to think, I have come to realize our success as a clinic, and a family over the past 2 decades, is because of YOU! We have had over 5,500 people come through our doors, and many of you have made such an impact on our lives even though you may not know it. You have become a part of our family, and we are very appreciative of you. Some people ask me if it is hard for me when patients come and go and even pass away. Yes, it is difficult and can be an emotional roller coaster. But, in the end, it’s worth it. I feel very grateful to have been allowed to be a part of each and every one of your lives. And if I was able to give you relief or help you achieve your goals, then it was worth it. We have grown to be a part of this community, and we will continue to give back as much as we can. You have made us what we are today, and we are so proud. Being given your trust has been an honor and a privilege. Thank You! – Dr. Kim Contryman, PT, DPT, NCS, OCS
