Do you choose to just live your life or live a life without limitations? As a childhood cancer survivor that resulted in my right leg being amputated above the knee, I didn’t even let that question enter my head. I quickly returned to high school sports, represented our country in two Paralympics (‘98’ Nagano, Japan and ‘02’ Salt Lake City, Utah) as an alpine ski racer and then I decided to enter my 40s by competing in a 24-hour obstacle course race completing 50 miles of obstacles over extreme terrain in the middle of the desert. Most recently, I have climbed a 19,347’ volcano in Ecuador and hiked some of our country’s most challenging trails. Living life to the fullest as I choose requires some risk. As a result, my life without limitations as a middle aged active above knee amputee hasn’t come without injuries. There was the time I dislocated and broke my elbow in 3 spots, that was followed by rupturing 2 disks in my neck leading to spinal fusion and then there is the chronic lower back pain from using a prosthesis for 27 years. Some might say it is time to slow down. My response, this is the most important time to keep going. It is all about using it or losing it. That is why for all my physical therapy needs I have gone to Matt Pullano. His hands-on approach and knowledge are unmatched. He understands the importance of recovery and performance at all levels, ages and abilities for all types of physical setbacks. If you need PT and want less limitations with more mobility, don’t hesitate with using Pullano PT.
