While I wasn’t at all fortunate to fracture my back and tear my ACL, I was very fortunate to do my rehab at Balance PT. Having had both Pete and Chris as my physical therapists for a combined 16 months, I’m pretty confident in saying you can’t and won’t find better therapists, and maybe even more importantly, better people. Both Chris and Pete not only made me stronger, but made me want to get stronger. The relationships that I built with both of them, always had me coming in smiling, despite going through some of the toughest times of my life. Chris constantly pushed me to increase my numbers, weights, and range of motion while obviously being conscious of my limits. Pete was beyond educational in my experience at Balance, showing me the ‘why’ behind the ‘do’. Their commitment to my success and overall experience catalyzed my interest in the medical field and had me playing my best lacrosse after a full recovery.

It’s been just over one year since I was cleared to return to sports. In that year, I helped lead my school’s lacrosse team to the best record in school history as the only Junior captain, and a starting offensive midfielder. This past Summer, I was named to the All-Star team at Blue Chip 225, one of the nation’s largest recruiting events.
