My Therapy Story by Maxine Klimek

I am so grateful for a wonderful therapy facility here in Parkers Prairie.

I went through PT 3 full months with a good recovery after total knee replacement the end of January 2022.

The therapists I had are so understanding, caring and very knowledgeable.

My work is not done with though.  After being discharged I must continue the exercises at home to continue to gain strength.

I would highly recommend St. Williams Therapy Clinic.

I wish them all the best in their services.

I certainly will miss them all as we grow in knowing each other.

My Therapy Story

Megan McCormick, DPT (kneeling) by Joanne (Schubert) Thun.

The diagnosis by my doctor was that I have a vertebrae moving too far forward causing pinching of a nerve.  Therefore pain occurred.  I say “occurred” because the therapy exercises suggested and demonstrated to me truly helped, so past tense is used here!  Of course, I had to do as prescribed by the therapists, Maren and Megan didn’t do them for me!  Ha Ha – oh well!  What a feeling of satisfaction enjoyed by me now to be free of pain.  They had a good sense of humor, so we enjoyed a few ‘giggles’.

My probing questions readily received more exercises to do which relieved me of other areas of discomfort.  That way I got the most I could get out of each session.

Upon discharge I was given a nice gift.  They deserve gifts too!

Thanks, girls!

My Therapy Story By Dianne Zimmerman

Therapy room is very spacious and very clean.

The two Physical Therapists I had, Megan & Marin, were very concerned about the therapy I received and took time to explain each and demonstrate each exercise they wanted me to do.

I certainly would recommend the St. William’s Physical Therapy program to anyone who needs PT.

The office workers were also very helpful.

My Therapy Story By Bruce Springer

Melissa Davidson, Occupational Therapist

On April 30th I about fell getting out of bed. My legs felt weak. By Sunday afternoon I had a hard time walking and my hands were getting weak.  On Monday I was diagnosed with Guillians Barre Syndrome.  I spent a week in the hospital while receiving treatment.

Due to GBS I had to use a walker and couldn’t lift a cup of coffee.  I started to feel a little better after a week and didn’t think that I would need therapy, but my Dr. highly recommended that I did.

So I went to Big Stone Therapy at St. William’s and it turned out to be the best decision I could have made.  I saw both a Physical and Occupational Therapist once a week for six weeks.  They helped me with rebuilding my muscles, balance and coordination.  With their help I am getting back to normal.  I am able to go for long walks, bike rides and can use my tools.

A ‘BIG” thanks to Melissa and Neil!
