Making WV Better... One Patient at a Time

Mountain State Success Story!

Another Mountain State success story! Ryan Hawkins arrived at our Fairmont office with complaints of debilitating back pain and balance issues. Prior to starting physical therapy he was having a fear of falling with most activities on his feet and he was having difficulty with stairs. Ryan also had terrible back pain with bending & lifting tasks.
Ryan was treated by Gabe Wilson DPT, OCS and Tim Elliott PTA. PT treatment consisted of hands-on lumbar mobilizations and LE stretching. Ryan also completed core stability exercises (bridges, table planks, rows on PB), functional lifts like RDL, sled pushing, and dynamic balance activities on unstable surfaces to address strength and balance.
Ryan’s pain and function improved dramatically with PT. Recently he was able to compete in the State Special Olympics and earned a silver medal! Congratulations Ryan!
