“Right now, I’m in physical therapy,” says Edith. “I’ve been going for the past four or five weeks, and I cannot thank Dr. Burkhart enough for recommending it.”
She says the physical therapy staff has been warm, welcoming and has made her feel like she is “a part of the family.” This personal touch, coupled with state-of-the-art equipment and continual visits with an orthopaedic specialist, allowed Edith to get back to walking pain-free again in just a few short weeks.
“The people here are outstanding. They’re right there for you if you have to make phone calls or have any questions,” says Edith. “They try to help you, they’re all willing to work with you, and that’s very important, especially when you’re in a state where you’re not feeling the greatest. They’re there to cheer you up and make you feel so much better.”
After her successful outcome, Edith is ready and excited to get on with her life. “It’s unbelievable how I feel, from not being able to stand up at all to now being able to bend my knee and to walk again,” she says.
