Bill H. came in because he was having knee pain from an injury while walking through a Building Store. He had previously received an MRI and a Cortisone injection in the Knee. He was thinking that the next step was surgery as his knee pain was not resolved. Coming into our OSI Shoreview clinic for Physical Therapy he was skeptical that PT had anything to offer, as he knew the knee was damaged.
After the evaluation and discussion on the benefits of conservative treatment he agreed to comply with a home exercise program with weekly re-checks in the clinic. Within 6 weeks, without surgery, Bill was pain free and had returned to all his daily activities. In Bill’s words “I am doing much better now and am glad I came to PT.”
