Steve — Physical Therapy Patient Story

UPMC Content 3

Steve, 60, a retired teacher and avid senior league baseball player, needed both of his knees to be replaced after being a runner for 38 years.

As a lifelong athlete, Steve was eager to get back to his favorite sports as soon as possible, so he started physical therapy at UPMC Centers for Rehab Services’ Eastgate Plaza location in Greensburg following each knee surgery.

Steve did physical therapy with Jamie Dunlap, DPT, after his first knee replacement surgery and was happy to have her help him again.

“Jamie was willing to push me but also taught me how to progress the right way,” said Steve. “She really reinforced that recovery is a process. Sometimes a crawl, walk, and then run scenario. She was fully aware of my goals and helped me achieve them without wasting time or missing anything in the process.”

Steve has since been recovering well and sees a bright and active future ahead of him. He is looking forward to getting back to doing the things he enjoys.

“I never felt like I was just a number and always recommend Jamie and her staff to everyone that I talk to,” said Steve. “They’re very professional and knowledgeable. I really can’t say enough about the care I received at CRS.”
