Interviewee: Mom, Maria

Son: Barret, Age 26, Cerebral Palsy

Main Goal: Improve his sitting and independence so that he can do more for himself

Could you describe what things were like when your child first began working with Breakthrough PT?  What were you most concerned about?  What goals did you have?

My goal when Barret was little was for him to reach his potential.  Now my goal is to keep his body from deformities and pain.  My main goal is really to keep him from pain because I know, with age, the contractures will get worse.  I try to keep him moving.  He has difficulty controlling his body and movements.

What kind of improvements were you able to see or feel as a result of working with Breakthrough PT?

I've seen improvements in his posture, his strength, and his balance.  I notice when he sits on the edge of his bed, he's straighter.  He's gotten stronger!

What do you love most about visiting our office?

I love that the therapy is different.  The whole body is working at the same time.  I think working all of his muscles and every part of his body is making him a lot stronger.  And his therapist is great.  She really cares, which is very important.  

How has working with Breakthrough PT made you feel about your son's mobility?

His mobility has improved.  He's getting stronger.  The weeks that he isn't able to come, I know that he needs to go back.

What would you want other people to know about working with Breakthrough PT?

Experience a new type of therapy.  I think it's good for everyone.

If someone was on the fence about working with us, what would make them feel more confident about giving us a try?

Try the therapy.  You have nothing to lose.  I was looking for this kind of therapy for years.  Thank God I found this place!  It's really about Christine.  I am so thankful for her.  She is helping me and she cares for her patients, which is very important.
