On 4/11, I had my last visit with my doctor, Dr. Gettleman, at Valley Prebyterian Hospital. After testing me and checking me out in general, he said that I was definitely ahead of the curve in my rehabilitation process, as I had been all along. He said that though we speak of closure at the 6 month period, it is really about a year before we can say everything is 100%.He suggested working with light weights moving up as I go and swimming, which I have been doing for about 2 months now.
I want to thank everyone at Larchmont for all the help given to me and wish all of you the best of everything.
I ran the Los Angeles Rock and Roll Half Marathon on October 28th, and it went well. Thanks for your help!!
Guys, my knee is better than new, spent most of the weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway going between 110-185 MPH...thanks so much for your focus, energy and care, I wouldn't have made it back without you all.
New ACL and new lease on life!
As you can see from this photo, Larchmont Physical Therapy accepts all patients, even bow-tied fashion victims. I went to Larchmont after a hand operation which included several weeks with a cast and splint. As a result, my little and third fingers would not bend and the other fingers and my thumb were stiff and numb. My doctor was especially concerned about the two fingers which would not bend because, as he said, I could literally lose my grip. After several sessions at Larchmont, those two fingers are bending and the three numb digits are almost 100%. I am back to regular exercise, including tennis where before I couldn't even hold a racket. After my experience, I would not hesitate in giving Larchmont a hand.
I began treatment at Larchmont Physical Therapy in the fall of 2008 after undergoing major surgery that left me immobilized for months. Since then I have regained a great deal of movement and strength and thanks to the therapists at Larchmont PT, I continue to improve every day. Their kindness, patience and knowledge have helped me tremendously and I am forever grateful.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you - for your patience and prodding. I feel 10 years younger!!!!

Just a short note to relay that I am very pleased with the progress of my physical therapy after my full knee replacement operation. Aside from the first two-three weeks after the operation, I believe I have recovered rather nicely and the process has been surprisingly "as anticipated" and "on schedule" without any problems.
A lot of the credit for my steady rehab and improvement is as a direct result of the very professional treatment I am receiving from your office. I truly look forward to my bi-weekly sessions with your staff....and I directly attribute my rather rapid and uneventful knee restoration to the attention I am receiving at LARCHMONT PHYSICAL THERAPY.
I do want to express a very special mention of gratitude to one of your therapists, Ms. Doreen Akry. Although Ms. Akry has moved on to complete her studies at USC, she was most pleasant, dedicated, thoroughly prepared and managed my sessions with much professional ability. I would sincerely appreciate it if you will be so kind as to pass on a copy of this letter of appreciation/recommendation to Ms. Akry.
I am a sports medicine surgeon specializing in the shoulder and knee. Larchmont Physical Therapy has been an excellent source of physical therapy for my patients, providing superb care to my patients for over 10 years. The staff at Larchmont Physical Therapy is caring and considerate as well as thorough and precise. I would recommend Larchmont Physical Therapy to my personal friends and family without reservation.

Absolutely! I am very proud of the physical good health I have been able to maintain thanks to the excellent care at larchmont physical therapy.
The physical therapists at Larchmont Physical Therapy have treated three members of our family, all with excellent results. Their treatment is effective and delivered in a warm and professional manner. The office is well run and friendly. Treatment starts with a detailed analysis of each problem and proceeds with development of an individualized plan. The exercise room on the premises allows patients to gain strength and confidence under the close supervision of the therapists and their assistants. With her intelligent and supportive approach, Jeanna helped me gain confidence and strength after other therapists had thrown up their hands over the complexity of my situation. As a physician, I can truly appreciate the degree of skill and dedication that the Larchmont physical therapists bring to their work.
Birgitta is one of a kind. She has kept me standing straight and strong for the past seven years. My chronic back condition has been kept stable through her efforts and guidance. It has been a pleasure working with her!
I would also like to acknowledge the contribution of my physical therapist Kathy Whooley, at Larchmont Physical Therapy, has been phenomenal. Kathy's approach does not focus entirely on the hip, but integrates body strength and movement as it relates to hip function. You should know that her staff is excellent and much focused.
