From the first day, when he came through the doors of Premier Physical Therapy Services with a cautious and reserved hopefulness, to what I witnessed yesterday which was nothing less than a hopeful and gutsy effort. He walked 2 times the distance he had walked the previous day and 4 times the distance that he walked 3 weeks ago for the first time in therapy. It was awesome to see the other patients in the clinic watching and either quietly or loudly cheering him on and being pushed themselves to do more than they thought was possible. Additionally it was touching to see his family, including his younger brother, his mom and dad see him accomplish this new personal walking record sealed with a hug from a beaming younger brother. The sense of accomplishment of a job well done by my patient and a sense of pride from his family in seeing it unfold in front of them is another example of why this is the greatest job on the planet!
