Thanks for treating my ankle sprain!

I used to be a good soccer player. Now as a “mature player”, I carry all of the damage, joint weakness and pains with me. After my latest rolled ankle I was fortunate enough to be seen by Kari at the Performance Physical Therapy clinic at NSD. After assessing my injury, Kari shared with me that my ankle no longer had the ligaments required to support it and explained why it looked different than other sprains and hurt in different places. The stretching she gave me to do both in clinic and on my own brought tears to my eyes – I thought she was just being mean… turns out she knew exactly what she was doing. After discussing taping and bracing options that I will need to continue on in my season, she taped my ankle sending me on my way. It’s 2 days later as I write this note, and I can’t believe the difference in my ankle. With a little luck I’ll be strapping on my new ankle brace and playing next week. I rolled this same ankle last summer and didn’t bother to get treatment – I missed about 6 weeks of games. Having the education, treatment, orthopedic support and home care makes injuries manageable and will get me back in the game sooner. Thanks to Kari for helping me understand that tape and braces aren’t an inconvenience – they are my new reality but a bigger thanks for making this easier and quicker than I thought possible
Thanks!!! Stacey T
