“My PT story begins with the saga of my very flat, very achy feet. The foot and ankle exercises have helped to strengthen my weak areas. I am able to walk on uneven surfaces such as the side of the hill behind my pole barn. My fear of losing my balance had definitely lessened. The cheerful, helpful staff made exercising a positive experience. The girls kept me motivated even if my feet and ankles were hurting.” - Joy Martinsen “The girls kept me motivated”
“I am so very thankful”
“When I started therapy, I was unable to sit without pain in my right calf. I had been dealing with it on my own for two months (just praying it would go away), but it started to impact everyday life. I have greatly benefited from the knowledgeable and professional staff at Orthopedic and Balance Therapy Specialists. The care and expertise they offer is second to none and I will be sure to recommend them to anyone in need of similar care. I am 100 % and back to life!” - Nick Smith “I am 100 % and back to life!”
“I am so glad that my doctor sent me to Mike and Theresa. I had injured my foot over the 4th of July, but it was not healing and became very painful to walk. Once the immediate issues were addressed, Mike was able to address some long term issues I have been having with my ankle from previous injuries and surgeries that were contributing factors. For the first time in years, I do not have that pins-and-needles feeling in the side of my foot. I am so very thankful for the care and attention provided by this team!” - Katrina Bohlin
PATIENT OF THE MONTH! Meet our patient of the month Edward Wajvoda! Ed joined our OBTS family after attending a consultation with our therapist for his back. He has had therapy two times before for his back, but unfortunately his pain returned. After seeing our ads, Ed thought our clinic would be able to help relieve his pain. Ed is a retired electrical engineer, who looked forward to building a large model railroad and working in the garden during his free time. Unfortunately, his sciatica pain returned leaving him with pain while standing and bending. After three weeks of therapy, Ed can stand longer and has increased flexibility! Ed states his time at Orthopedic and Balance Therapy Specialists has been fantastic and he enjoys feeling like he is a friend and not a client! Ed has responded awesome with his personalized treatment and looks forward to completing his railroad model and returning to the garden! Ed has chosen a charity close to his heart, Multiple Sclerosis Association of America. His wife Rose has Multiple Sclerosis and their family had gained an understanding of the condition from the help at MSAA. Ed and Rose want to thank MSAA for the instrumental role they make in finding a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. Thank you for being a wonderful patient!
