I have been meaning to write to you for a long time and decided I couldn't wait any longer. I have wanted so much to tell you how grateful I am for the care and genuine compassion and interest you and your employees have extended to me.
I have been to nearly all of the physical therapy businesses here in Corpus Christi, and I must tell you that NONE of them compare to yours. When we first met I felt an instant connection. You LISTENED to me. Your eyes never left mine, and to me, that's an extremely important quality because it shows interest and respect. You are the ONLY one who has ever taken the time to show me pictures and explain in detail what your plans for my therapy would include. Mere words are just not sufficient enough to express my sincere gratitude not only to you but to your sweet staff as well.
Instead of dreading going to physical therapy, I actually look forward to going because I KNOW I will feel like a "limp dishrag" when I leave but that's an extra good feeling when you feel all the muscles in your body,(especially the ones I've been having difficulty with) are tense and cramped so much of the time.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Lee for all you've done and continue to do to make me feel at least 3/4 whole again. I'll probably never feel 100% whole again since I'm getting old. But hey, 3/4 isn't bad at all.
I injured my left knee while playing flag football in November 2010, at NAS Corpus Christi. Being a Marine Captain, I was in fairly good shape at the time and I was surprised by the injury. Even more surprised when the resulting MRI revealed a completely torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament. After surgery in January to repair the torn ligament and minor meniscus damage, I was sent to a Navy physical therapist. After two months of rather repetitive therapy, I was told that I was "good to go" and didn't need any further assistance. The therapist told me to continue the exercises he had shown me, to start back in the gym at a reasonable pace and to start running when I felt comfortable, but no sooner than two months, which would be four months from the surgery date. I followed his directions to the letter, and when it came time to start "running", I certainly tried but the attempt was fruitless, as it still hurt to climb stairs and put that type of impact on my knee.
It was at this point that I realized that I was not making any progress in my knee's ability to regain its' pre-injury form. All of the things that still hurt and bothered me when I left Navy physical therapy in March were still present in May. Luckily, I was able to get a referral to a clinic out in town and on a friend's recommendation, went to see Lee Glover. Lee could instantly tell that while I had made strides since the surgery, I was not where I should be from a mobility and pain standpoint based on how much time I had been rehabbing since the surgery. His approach was simple: find my weaknesses and limits, and then turn the weaknesses into strengths and push me to the limits every day.
After just two months with Lee, not only was I running again, but I was running fast with no pain. I could jump, twist, pivot and impact my left knee and, for the first time since the injury, my left knee started to feel like my right knee again. Lee told me that it takes a year to fully recover from a significant knee injury, and while he is definitely correct, I know that I made major strides in the two months that he worked with me. I would highly recommend Lee Glover as a physical therapist to anyone in search of rehabilitation, not just for his highly skilled and knowledgeable approach to physical therapy but also for his kind and devoted demeanor. With Lee, you are not getting a "go through the motions" kind of guy but rather someone who truly cares about you and your progress. You are getting a physical therapist and a friend.
