I would highly recommend anyone in Calgary and the surrounding area to use Prairie Therapy for all of their athletic therapy needs. I had the pleasure of working with both Brandon and John as I did rehab on my dominant shoulder after injuring it steer wrestling and having extensive surgery on it in April 2011.
Brandon and John worked around my busy work schedule to find times that were convenient for me and motivated me to push myself to increase my range of motion and my rotator cuff strength. They were very knowledgeable and innovative at creating optimal stretches and strengthening techniques so I consistently felt I was getting the most out of my sessions with them and my workouts at home.
I always looked forward to my therapy sessions as I found Brandon and John to be optimistic and outgoing. Also I knew that a session with them would last as long as the patient needs and is not dictated by a one hour appointment time. I also liked how I was always working one-on-one with an athletic therapist, who could make sure I was performing the stretch or strengthening technique correctly, and wasn’t compensating with another muscle group.
After three months of working with Prairie Therapy, I went back to see my surgeon. He was very happy with my strength and muscle tone, and released me, earlier than I expected (after five months!), to go back to calf roping and steer wrestling. I have started roping calves again and feel confident in my shoulder strength because of the hard work that I put in with Brandon and John. I am very grateful that I went to them for my therapy needs and would encourage everyone to contact Prairie Therapy for all of their athletic therapy needs.
