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.

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!
