Making WV Better... One Patient at a Time

Another Success Story!!!

Another Mountain State Success Story! North Marion football players Blaine Duckworth and Tyler Curry were both down & out during their Freshmen year at North Marion High School. In “Part One” of this story we will focus on Blaine Duckworth. In June of 2019 Blaine suffered a torn ACL during the June live period and underwent ACL reconstruction surgery a few weeks later. Blaine began physical therapy at our Mannington facility with PT Chris Moore, who is also a board-certified specialist in sports physical therapy. Blaine made spectacular progress over the first 4 months of rehab, but due to an accident at home suffered a re-tear of his ACL. Blaine and his family were devastated. He underwent a 2nd ACL surgery in early December 2019 and began the rehab process…all over again.

Blaine’s treatment consisted of knee/hip/core strengthening, hands on knee mobilization, soft tissue massage, and sports-specific drills.To his credit, Blaine put his mind and his heart into his physical therapy and by late June appeared ready to return to football activities. Blaine finally returned to the field on September 4th when North Marion defeated Preston County and has helped the Huskies to a 3-1 record to start the season. Congrats Blaine on your successful return to football! Your hard work, dedication, and mature demeanor did not go unnoticed!

Another Mountain State success story!
Addie Elliott is currently a junior at North Marion High School and has participated in cross country, basketball, and track. Addie arrived at our Mannington facility in June of 2020 with complaints of severe R hip/groin pain a diagnosis of hip labral tear and femoroacetabular impingement. Addie underwent physical therapy with some success, but continued to have pain with running long distances. Addie underwent surgery in mid February of 2021 to address the labral tear and reshape her femoral head. Addie was staring at 5-6 months of rehab before she could return to running and sports participation.
In late March Addie began her physical therapy treatment with Chris Moore who is a Board-Certified Specialist in both Orthopedics and Sports. Treatment began with hands-on stretching/massage techniques and isolated strengthening, but eventually progressed to a grueling regimen of core and hip strengthening and sports-specific training. Addie displayed a fantastic work ethic and attitude that aided in her progress. By mid-July she had returned to full participation in running and cross-country.
A few weeks ago Addie set a personal record time during a meet and last week earned All Conference recognition at the Big Ten meet. Tomorrow Addie will participate in the Region 1 cross country meet. Good luck Addie! It is great to see you doing what you love again!
We would also like to wish good luck to current patient Maylie Bland and the entire North Marion CC team!
