Again, we can’t thank everyone enough for their input and entries for our #MakovickaPT contest! The point of the contest was to be able to see what our patients were able to do after having physical therapy. The beauty of it is that each person had a different view on what that may have been. From getting back to exercising and spending more time with family to progressing from a walker to a cane, we had it all. As you progress through physical therapy, it is very easy to get discouraged if the results aren’t coming as fast as you expected. Our therapists know and understand what you are going through and are excited to help you get back to what you love most! No matter how small your goal might be, it is accomplishing it that makes all the hard work worth it.
Below are the winners as well as the rest of the entries that we received! If you haven’t yet “Liked” us on Facebook or followed us on Twitter, this would be an awesome time to do so!
