Hi, my name is Dr. Scott Gray, owner and founder of Back In Motion Sport & Spine Physical Therapy.
I wanted to share with you my story of discovering the lasting and permanent results that manual physical therapy gave me as a college athlete. It was a Sunday afternoon and I had just woken up.
I could barely sit up or move my leg. I had just finished playing in a college football game the day prior.
I didn’t know what I had did and I was in bad shape. Monday had rolled around and I was experiencing the same results. I could barely move.
I was desperate and in bad shape. The problem was…
If I didn’t practice on Tuesday or Wednesday I wouldn’t be able to play that week’s game. Needless to say… I needed a miracle.
First I had tried seeing our athletic trainer on campus. No luck.
I then went to our team physician. Again, the same results. It wasn’t until I looked up a thing called a “manual physical therapist” that I got the results I was looking for.
After seeing the Doctor of Physical Therapy he determined I had suffered a severe muscle strain in my abdomen and groin. After one session, guess what?
I was at least able to move and practice. I was amazed at how fast the results were. Resting and icing weren’t going to help me.
I needed something different and something that would expedite my healing. That’s when I realized it wasn’t my fault and that more people needed access to manual therapists.
