Knee Surgery Recovery to Backpacking the Grand Canyon It all started with a sharp intense pain on the right knee directly after a slip on a muddy surface under the bridge of Braddock Road in Springfield, VA. For those that are familiar with this area the rain causes the mud erosion to build directly under this bridge. So later in pain I went to the orthopedics office that after MRI’s and X-rays diagnoses me with Arthroscopy of the knee (torn Cartilage). We scheduled my surgical appointment for mid January with much hesitation because my wife and I had already made reservations on a three day backpacking trip in the Grand Canyon. My orthopedic medical doctor assured me with the proper physical therapy from ACE Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine I could hike on this trip even with the strenuous steep elevation changes. The surgery went smoothly and immediately I was in ACE physical therapy for three days per week. All of the therapist were very understanding and respected my goal of this large looming trek ahead of me. ACE succeeded in getting my knee repaired with total confidence. Even carrying an extra weight because of the lack of water within the canyon (total 42 lbs) for 20 miles my wife and I enjoyed this venture down to the lower canyon and back up again. My wife and I both thank you for your sincere integrity and ACE’s physical therapy team’s knowledge and skills for making this hiking trip enjoyable and successful (we have plenty of pictures too). You and your team are amazing and today I am still backpacking but now on the Appalachian Trail. Eagle Trail Dancer AKA Jim Ward

It can be a challenge to find an excellent massage therapist -- some are nothing more than *** workers while others charge outrageous spa prices for little more than a back rub. That's why I am delighted to recommend Steve Miller, and am glad that I have been a client of his for many years. He is a total professional, and knows how the body works and how muscles are interconnected. For a big guy, he has an incredibly gentle touch, although he can ramp up to harder pressure such as deep tissue if requested or needed. Most importantly, he is a charming man who immediately puts you at ease -- it was apparent from my very first massage years ago that I had found what I was looking for. I give Steve my highest recommendation. - Rich M.
Being a returning patient of ACE Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine, I can assure you that their Therapy Staff really know their stuff. I saw them last for rehab after my knee surgery. Three days into the rehab, my calf was extremely swollen, felt tight and painful. My Physical therapist suspected that I had a blood clot. She called my doctor and sent me to the Emergency room right away. They did ultrasound and found the blood clot. My surgeon told me that I could have died if the blood clot was not diagnosed in time. So you know why I can trust them with my life! A week later I was able to resume my physical therapy and now I am back to playing golf. All my family, friends and co workers go to ACE. Highly recommend them.
