Rehab Success Story
Many thoughts raced through my mind as I prepared for total hip
replacement surgery last year. At the top of the list of concerns was
would I be once again able to live the extremely active lifestyle I had
grown accustomed to. Being an avid runner and also officiating two
sports as possible. After the surgery (Dr. Nazarian, Pa. Hospital) I was
determined to find a rehabilitation facility that would meet my needs.
After speaking to former patients and doing some research of my
own I decided to schedule an appointment with Marlton rehab for an
evaluation. The first visit reinforced that I had made the correct decision
to come to Marlton rehab. During my initial consultation with
Dwight Healy (PT) all concerns I had were replaced with enthusiasm,
let’s get the ball rolling. Dr. Nazarian had prescribed aqua rehabilitation, which I was quite
pleased with. From my first aqua session to the completion of therapy, Dwight Healy provided
me with the techniques, guidance and encouragement to reach the goals we had set for my recovery.
Less than one year to the date of surgery I competed in the Brad Street Run, the fourth
time I had run this race. I have also resumed officiating sports, another passion of mine. To this
day I have continued to do the daily exercise program that Dwight provided me during therapy
to strengthen my hip and surrounding areas. I have also returned to Marlton Rehab to take advantage
of the water exercise program offered twice a week. A huge thank you to Dwight and
the staff at Marlton Rehab for the excellent care I was provided.
