Pleased Patients

Two years ago I got the news that I was going to need a hip replacement.  At 36 I was in complete shock and was freaked out about going through the whole process.  Being a professional athlete I wondered if I would be able to regain the lifestlye that I love.  Choosing the right physical therapist is just as important as is choosing the right doctor.  My experience at OBXPT was top notch!!!  Amy, Cayce, Jim and the whole crew handled me with such care and put my mind at ease.  I call it ” SWEET PAIN” because the process was hard but they made it fun.  The end result is priceless!  I have my life back.  OBXPT is amazing.  They got me back to doing what I love.
