Carla's Inspiring Story:  Overcoming A Kickboxing Injury

Posted by Activcore Physical Therapy & Performance on February 8, 2020 at 3:59 PM

Carla Kickboxing

Carla:  “Seven years ago, I was kickboxing and I jumped, landed, and felt this shooting pain. It turns out I had blown one of my discs. Six months later it happened again. Slowly but surely I started cutting out the things l loved. Little things started to creep up — getting a dish out of the dishwasher, picking up a paper off the floor — and I began to think, what can I do, what can I do anymore? The person who I thought I was, was gone.”

Dr. Ed Foresman:  “Initially Carla came in — and in her past she had been a very active individual, very fit and she wanted to continue this throughout her life. She had been told she would never be able to achieve that again. So I went through her history, examined her, and then I said, 'That's not true at all. In fact, if you give me two months of your time, I will have you running again.' Actually it didn't take that long, it took six weeks!”
