Six years ago my left knee was seriously injured. Two successful operations and eleven months of PT had restored full range of motion, but I still experienced soreness and pain. I saw distinguished BIDMC sports orthopedic surgeon Dr. Arun Ramappa and he found the quadriceps muscle in my knee to be atrophied. He ordered a course of expert physical therapy employing a newly-proven technique called BFRT. At my request, he mentioned Stephen Vitale of Professional PT, Boston Financial District Office as having the requisite credentials to help. And, help me he did.
15 weeks of PT, twice a week, using BFRT technology, gave me a giant leap forward in my quest. I am now following his instructions at home and a local gym with the help of an artful and superb personal trainer. As Steve set expectations early, 6 years of atrophy are not overcome in several months. I would highly recommend Steve Vitale, who also teaches his trade at Northeastern University, as an amazing professional equipped to guide his team in doing PT the “right way.’ A nice vibe in their office makes it fun. Thanks, too, to assistants Christina, Aaron and Anoll.
