My Therapy Story By Amber Herman

When I first started therapy, I didn’t have much strength in my left ankle. I could not walk up and down stairs. I walked with a limp.

Now after 4 weeks of therapy I am confident in everything I do. I was supposed to be in therapy for 8 weeks, but I graduated early in just 4!

I would like to thank all the amazing therapists for your help.

My Therapy Story By Rosamond Peery

I enjoy therapy at St. William’s, with the one and togetherness.

Explained all exercises and activities. Did some things before – picking up things floor, get myself up from floor. Felt better after exercises.

Would recommend it to anyone.

FALLS PREVENTION AWARENESS WEEK September 20—24th, 2021

Falls are the main reason older people lose their independence. 

Are you at risk?

Four things you can do to prevent falls:

  1. Begin an exercise program to improve your leg strength and balance.
  2. Ask your doctor or pharmacist to review your medications.
  3. Get annual eye check-ups and update your eyeglasses.
  4. Make your home safer by:
    1. Remove clutter & trip hazards
    1. Put railings on all stairs and add grab bars in the bathroom
    1. Have good lighting, especially on stairs.

Contact your local Big Stone Therapists at St. William’s Living Center Outpatient Therapy Clinic by calling 218-338-1014 for information on exercise, fall prevention programs, and options for improving home safety.

My Therapy Story By Racheal Libby

My accident happened December 2, 2020, but break was not found until two weeks later, even though I started PT for rotator cuff. I saw five different therapists during this time.  Everyone had their own way, but pretty much the same exercises given. I felt I could do more and probably pushed myself but was always told not to overdo because I could do more damage. I enjoyed all my times at Physical Therapy and all the therapists that worked with me.

I recommend St. William’s Outpatient Therapy Clinic!

My Therapy Story By Terri Payne

I had my knee replaced July 1, 2020 (on my anniversary)!

Since I work at St. William’s I requested that my rehab be done here.  We tried to get my knee to be more flexible, but it would not have any of that.  They did a great job giving me exercises to do at home!  The bike seemed to be the best thing for my knee.

I have diabetes and am in my early 60’s which probably was a factor in my recovery.  I also went back to work probably too soon.  My job requires me to be on my feet the whole shift except breaks.

The physical therapists did a wonderful job working with me.
