We're essential to you, and we're open for your health.
As always, our focus at McKenzie Sports Physical Therapy is on your health and well-being. In this time of concern, please be assured that our small office remains a safe space for all and that we plan to remain open for business as usual.

 We’ve increased our emphasis on existing cleaning and sanitation procedures and will continue to implement preventative measures to ensure your health and safety.

Please reschedule your appointment as soon as you can if you are not feeling well or feel you are putting yourself or others at risk.

If you are older, please use your best judgment whether you should continue with your physical rehab at this time. I believe it is wise for those with advanced age to stay home. In lieu of in person treatments, we can schedule a time to talk about what else you should be doing at home, so you can continue to progress.

Thank you for your faith in our office to help you achieve your goals.

Meet Christian Helsel–NCAA Division 1 Baseball player.  Christian was one of my patients during this past year [I have permission to tell you that 😉 ]. Christian had a UCL (Ulnar Collateral Ligament) reconstruction or “Tommy John” repair on his throwing elbow. In this episode, Christian talks about:

  • the pain he had leading up to his Tommy John tear
  • his expectations and MISCONCEPTIONS about surgery
  • his physical therapy and  Tommy John rehab experience
  • the challenges that he endured
  • and the success he is now having….closing in on throwing 300ft.
