“I came to KCP for physical therapy 19 months ago to rehab my knee after surgery for a torn meniscus and torn cartilage. I have a lot of arthritis as well, and my orthopedist said it was basically a “clean up” of the knee until I have knee replacement surgery in a few years. A few months prior to injuring my knee, I lost my mother to terminal cancer. I had not been taking care of myself during her illness and after her death. I was depressed, grieving and had gained almost 50 pounds. I was sitting on the sidelines and not really living my life anymore. When I hurt my knee and had to have the surgery, it was at one of the lowest points in my life.
Coming to KCP and working with Joyce and Joy was exactly what I needed to get back on track. These women helped put me back together–mind, body and soul. I came to rehab my knee, but soon realized that I needed to completely rehab myself in order to get my life back on track again. Joyce helped me face my fears and emotions and move forward–to dig down and trust myself, to find the confident, happy person I had been before.
I strengthened my knee and achieved 95% function. My orthopedist was surprised, having predicted an outcome of no more than 75% function based on the severity of the arthritis and injury to my knee. He attributed the success to excellent rehab (and a great surgeon, of course!). I transitioned from physical therapy to personal training at KCP. I have lost 41 pounds since I started working with Joyce and Joy, which is amazing, but what I have gained is even more important. I am no longer afraid. I have strengthened my entire body and know that I can count on it. Even better than shedding the extra pounds, I have shed the weight of grief and emotional pain that was weighing me down. I feel 10 years younger and I am lighter and happier than any scale could ever reveal. I am forever grateful for Joyce and Joy, for seeing the “real me” that was buried under extra weight, both physical and emotional, and for having faith in me when I did not have faith in myself. They have helped change my life more than they will ever know!”
Just wanted to again thank you all so much for helping me get to the starting line on Sunday …. It was a VERY hot and brutal day but i was able to finish the race …. with no achilles pain at all !!! You all are the best !!!!
Our family came to KCP Physical after our son, Adam, underwent 2 surgeries for a torn ACL. Adam was only 10 and had extremely delicate surgery that required a high level of expertise. Joy communicated with our surgeon and helped formulate a treatment plan that we all understood and believed in 100%. She went above and beyond when it came to caring for and treating Adam. She came in on her days off to make sure that Adam got consistent therapy and was careful not to overwork the tender repair. Joy’s work was instrumental to the full recovery of our son and we would recommend her healing touch to all that are in need.
After seeing the soft tissue work that she did with Adam, it was an easy decision on who should help me with my Planters facetious and back pain. KCP has always communicated clearly, professionally, and executed the treatment plans as if we were family.
