I've told my rehab story to to a lot people over the years.... You totally changed my life and got me back to more than a normal life... I went through absolute hell with several doctors and the workers comp process before getting to you ( I am eternally grateful).... I can't stress enough how much I appreciate how you were divinely placed in my path to get me where I needed to go - you are a miracle.Tom S.
September 2013 I had a bicycling accident that changed my life. I went from being active and healthy to hospitalized and bedridden for months. What was once a working, flexible left arm became a broken and immobile limb. After multiple surgeries it was finally time to start physical therapy. My dear friend Sue (a patient at Orion) was kind enough to confide in Dr. Wendy Chorny about my situation and make the connection for us to work together during my healing process. My surgeon also knew Orion and highly recommended I see Wendy.
I was so scared having heard horror stories from friends who had broken their collarbones and went through excruciating pain during physical therapy. I cried during my first visit; my tears however were tears of joy. When I walked into the Orion office my arm was frozen in the position it had been resting in a sling for months. By the time I left my first appointment at Orion I was able to rest my arm at my side.
My story is not glamorous. It has been a long road to recovery and it is still not over. I have been truly blessed to have the support of Orion Physical Therapy Specialist during this time. I have never felt like just another patient. The office is open and inviting. The doctors and their assistants are all amazing; including the interns who are always enthusiastic and caring. I am not saying they are miracle workers. You have to take the first step, willing yourself to get better and continuing to do the exercises on your own. If you are in need of PT and are looking for a group of doctors who genuinely care about people Orion is my recommendation. They love what they do and they truly care about their patients as people. And, to top it off they choose to work in Dayton and they love this city.Christiane C.
I can’t say that I am pain free, and working out takes a lot of grit, but I can say that accomplishing some things I used to be able to do feels good inside. When I told Tyler that I jogged a 12:39 mile, he said that I am now the fast one in the family. At any rate, I am so thankful that God used you to impact positive change in my physical well being. So, in case you have a day where you doubt if what you do matters, just remember patients like me whose lives you have radically touched!Chris G.
Thanks for giving me my mom back.Jaden G.
