Dan has been playing soccer recreationally for many years. It is his social outlet, stress relief, source of fitness, but also - and more importantly - his passion. He plays in an adult league and is one of the older guys in his age group, but he still kicks some serious butt as a midfielder on the pitch. He really is a bad ass on the pitch and some of his team mates are retired Olympians and US National players. Awesome. Several years ago he had a severe knee injury which tore 3 ligaments and likely his meniscus. That injury had required surgery and rehab to get him back.
Dan had been experiencing worsening knee pain for a few weeks. The pain got so bad that he couldn’t walk up the stairs at work or carry and play with his grandson, let alone run and cut on the pitch. With the memories of his two previous surgeries and rehab process, the worst case kept running through his mind.
Will I need surgery again?
Will I have to retire from soccer?
Will I be able to play with my grandson like we want to?
We had helped his wife through her own injuries, so she recommended our office.
THAT’S WHEN HE DECIDED TO TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT. HE CALLED US.
