I knew I would be in for a long recovery process when I tore my ACL skiing. The staff at Sheridan Physical Therapy played a huge role in helping me get back on my feet after my ACL reconstruction surgery. Everyone in the office was always so positive and willing to help. As frustrating as it was being injured, I am grateful for the patience and the time that the Sheridan PT staff has put into my recovery. I am happy to be biking, running, backpacking, and climbing again!
My goal for this summer was to return to doing some of my favorite things outside. Six months after my surgery I was able complete a 468 mile bike ride across the entire state of Iowa. I averaged over sixty miles a day on the 7-day trek called Ragbrai. Even though Lance Armstrong passed me-I kept up with my team with no problem! The best part about this trip was knowing that my knee can keep up with me now. (And I was grateful to come back to the Wyoming mountains after riding past endless corn fields.) I am looking forward to many backpacking and climbing trips in the Bighorns now that I am back on my feet again. Thanks Sheridan PT!
