Congratulations to our September 2022 Patient of the Month, Sebastian Rios!!
Sebastian has COMPLETELY TRANSFORMED over the last few months he has been at OTB. He was someone who would rather be anywhere but here, and he has changed into a patient who has taken charge of their recovery, is an active participant in his rehab and is such a joy to have in the clinic!
Read below to hear Sebastian's testimonial:
"When I first came to Out of Box, I thought it was going to be the same old routine. The doctor asks you a few questions about what’s going, and then moves your body around which in my past experiences would just cause more pain and discomfort instead of healing. I was never a fan of physical therapy; I would not look forward to my appointments because I felt like the doctors would never truly listen to me and kept doing the same exercises even though they would cause me pain.
"Back in February, I got into a major car accident in which I sprained my neck and back. Doctor’s orders were not to work out or lift anything for at least 6 months. He also recommended Dr. Jesse to help with my neck and back. First time walking in to OTB, it was completely different than what I imagined. Patients were talkative and laughing with the doctors. As if the patients were happy to be there. I spoke to Dr. Jesse about my situation and the way he would look at me and ask questions, it was clear he was listening to my concerns.
"Dr. Jesse made me feel like family. You aren’t just a number to them; you can tell what makes them happy is seeing their patients get better and get back to doing what they loved to do before their injury. From the front desk receptionists to the aides and doctors; they all love what they do and always put a smile on my face when I see them.
"Every week, I would have a different set of exercises to do, and Dr. Jesse would see what worked and what didn’t so I would get the most out of them. After only 2 months of therapy, I was back to working out while improving every week. I never thought I would be happy to see a doctor, but I sure am when I walk into Out of Box Physical Therapy."
Congratulations again, Sebastian! You should be so proud of the progress you have made and we're excited to see what up next for you!
