Glacier Wolfpack Girls Basketball coach Kris Salonen came to Orthopedic Rehab’s Kalispell clinic located in the Flathead Valley Orthopedics Building for her Physical Therapy following a total knee replacement surgery earlier this spring. She had this to say about her healing process with Ben Kingan, DPT in our Kalispell clinic:
“I came to orthopedic rehab 2 weeks after I had my total knee replacement on April 13, 2015. I had numerous knee surgeries including 2 ACL repairs and meniscus repairs and removals.
I was not able to do so many things that I enjoy because I had so much damage and arthritis it was getting very frustrating. I was assigned to Ben Kingan post operation and from there I have never looked backed. With the help of Tonia Howe and graduate assistant Robin, Ben pushed me beyond limits that I never thought I could ever achieve. It was 2 and 1/2 months of hard work and sweat and appreciate so much to this day as I finish the most amazing summer of hiking, walking, golfing, and exercising all pain free. I miss all the “eyes” watching over me weekly making sure I am doing all my exercises and working to reach my goals. This is a great team thank you Orthopedic Rehab Physical Therapy.”
