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!
