I completely tore the ulnar collateral ligament in my elbow during a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournament. I was pretty bummed out to experience this kind of setback in my training, and wasn’t sure how long I’d be out. My doctor recommended a non-surgical treatment, so I went to see Mike. About 2 weeks post injury, my range of motion was limited and everyday tasks, like putting my hair up and opening doors, were still difficult. Jiu jitsu is a demanding sport and I felt miles away from being able to train again.
After a couple weeks of working with Mike I had my full range of motion back and was working on strengthening exercises. I saw improvements every day. At my follow up appointment, my orthopedic surgeon was amazed at how well I was doing. Just a few more weeks later I was training again and my arm felt great! Now, I’m working with Mike on an exercise routine to get even stronger than I was before the injury, and it hasn’t taken long to see results.
Mike not only provides excellent services as a physical therapist and a strength coach, but his friendly demeanor makes every appointment enjoyable. He has a way of making every client feel important, and always seems truly invested in his patient’s progress. I’ve never had such a positive experience with a physical therapist, and I couldn’t recommend him more!
