Good Shepherd Physical Therapy Helps Vicky Visit the Big Easy Just 16 Weeks Post-Surgery

Vicky KistlerVicky Kistler of Allentown suffered a meniscus tear after a fall nearly eight years ago. Although she had arthroscopic surgery immediately following the injury, she never fully recovered.

The years following her surgery were painful – with multiple trips to her orthopedic surgeon and several invasive medical treatments. Her doctor told her that one day she would “wave the white flag” and agree to knee replacement surgery. It was an inevitable conclusion.

After her right knee replacement, Vicky chose Good Shepherd – CedarPointe for physical therapy and was thrilled with her decision. “CedarPointe is a hidden gem,” says Vicky. “The facility is spotless. The staff is professional. I never dreaded or complained about going to therapy.”

Every appointment at CedarPointe started and ended on time, which was important for Vicky, a busy professional. “Every visit focused on my goals, my pain level and my comfort level with the exercises,” says Vicky. “The therapist was able to adjust and adapt to anything.”

Vicky’s goal was to be able to take a fun-filled trip to New Orleans, 16 weeks after surgery. By the time she arrived in the Big Easy, she was pain-free and able to enjoy all the city had to offer.
