My Therapy Story By George Rubner

On April 21, 2022 I was crushed by a big oak tree.

 The Parkers ambulance came to the field and transported me to the hospital in Alexandria.  After the CT scan, they saw I had back injuries so off to St. Cloud in another ambulance.  I was in St. Cloud for six days.  Was in a lot of pain through the whole thing with broken back and crushed ribs.  They started therapy down there before I came to St. William’s.  It was very painful! 

When I got to St. William’s they started me on getting in and out of bed.  The Therapy program in the nursing home is very great.  I would recommend them anytime.  Just listen and learn.  Big Stone Therapies is great to have around.
