Dean Waxler was the victim of a motorcycle accident who looked to physical therapy instead of pain medication to recover from his injuries.The candid story shared here, between a once reluctant client and his physical therapist, is inspiring for people that choose physical therapy over medication for pain management.
Dean, with the help of Dr. Adam Eubanks and other therapists, has made tremendous strides in recovery and Dean’s journey has been a true physical therapy success story that has taken courage and hard work.
About APTA’s MoveForward Campaign: APTA’s Move Forward web-directive started the progressive “#ChoosePT” internet campaign, encouraging patients to choose physical therapy over opioids as their pain management and treatment system. In proud support of the movement, Net Health connected with Dr. Adam Eubanks of Eclipse Physical Therapy and Sports Performance and a patient who, after 11 surgeries, found answers to his chronic pain through physical therapy. Physical therapy makes for safer pain management and can be a more viable pain solution for those who are suffering.
