For the First Time in 15 Years!
I had left knee pain for 15 years which kept me from being able to walk very far unless I used a walker. I went to an Orthopedic Doctor who took an X-ray which showed no sign of any trauma or injury. Several Doctors were unable to diagnose or successfully treat my left knee pain. They referred me to a Physical Therapist who gave me a few sessions of table massages. My pain increased so they sent me to an acupuncturist. Ten sessions did absolutely nothing!
My pain also prevented me from being able to kneel at church. I was very frustrated. A few months ago I also started experiencing significant low back and hip pain. My Doctor told me to find a better physical therapist and after much research I found Joane Chamberlain at Challenge Physical Therapy, who has advanced degrees on the subject of pain.
I had to use a walker from my car into Joane’s office because of my knee and back pain. When Joane evaluated me for my back pain, she told me that she thought my left knee pain was also originating from my back. Within one week I no longer needed to use my walker! Within several sessions I was able to climb stairs, drive my car and even put on my shoes!
One of the most amazing things for me, for the first time in 15 years I was able to kneel and receive Holy Communion at church. Hallelujah! The Priest and my friends at church said, “It’s a miracle, you’re kneeling” and I said, “No, it’s physical therapy and doing the exercises in Joane’s videos!
