"A Step in the Right Direction" was a full-page advertisement that ran in April 2015 in The Bulletin.Advertisement copy:
I have been dancing for fourteen years and dislocated my knee while walking. My injury was extensive and required surgery.
I came to Westview for rehabilitation after my knee surgery. John, Alex and Gina motivated me in a friendly and helpful environment.
I looked forward to going to physical therapy, knowing they were caring and were going to help me get back to dancing a lot quicker.
Not only did I work with Alex and John in the Sports Medicine Department doing exercises on equipment but they referred me to Aquatic Therapy. There, I was assisted by Gina who helped me to rehab on the underwater treadmill. All these combined efforts helped me get back to walking and dancing after my surgery.
Being in the water was relaxing, fun and provided me with an additional opportunity to do different exercises each day.
