I am a former major college football player who suffered a torn deltoid, an assortment of several broken extremities, thus resulting in the need for extensive rehabilitation activities. I was introduced to various rehabilitation concepts and methodologies. In fact, rehab was an integral part of my life then and unfortunately now.
Now that I’ve reached senior status, I just recently encountered a dislocated knee and a torn labium a few months apart. Fortunately, I was blessed to have accessibility to Greg Dean, PT, DPT, OTR/L CEAS, who was a physical therapist contracted by my employer, Lockheed Martin to rehabilitate Company employees. Mr. Dean’s innovative methodologies allowed me to resume jogging 3 miles almost daily four months after I dislocated my knee. Moreover, to avoid surgery, Dean took me through a methodical, but aggressive rehab regime for several months. Inevitably, I had to have surgery because I suffered an assortment of complications that resulted in a fall that I’d experienced.
After surgery, my surgeon put me into a rehab program the next day. My doctor and the attending physical therapists were amazed with the exercises that I was able to complete from Day 1 and throughout the rehabilitation process. My doctor credited Dean’s UNPRECEDENTED workout strategies for my miraculous recovery.
Due to popular request of Dean’s patients to start his own clinic, he opened his clinic, Achieve Physical Therapy on April 13, 2015.
