Upon graduation today, it has been my pleasure to have been assisted and walk thru these months with Joy Yanai. She never gave up and was always encouraging me with the different exercises to strengthen my left wrist that was broken. With her knowledge and applications and techniques, i was able to heal and appreciate the mobile service coming to our home as i was limited in driving and depended on others. A trusted friend in life's journey. Thank you and Blessings to you all.
Thank you for helping me so much during my rehab for my ankle fracture. You all helped me get through the physical recovery as well as the pain, frustration and fears I faced to regain mobility, health and even happiness. My doctor commented that the PT really made a big difference and said that I regained a lot more mobility than is typically expected at this point since injury and surgery. He was impressed that I was able to walk the 3 mile round trip on the Makapu’u Lighthouse trail prior to my final follow up visit with him. I can now officially check off “walk 1 mile: on the ankle recovery bucket list”!
I was told I had a torn Achilles tendon by my doctor. He referred me to Fukuji & Lum. This was the first time I attended physical therapy. I did not know what to expect and did not know that there were so many different target exercises. Not only did they target the injured area, but also a complete body work out that will help me with my job performance. The staff is very helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. Thanks to the therapists, I'm in better condition even before my injury. Note: the motivation to exercise is BACK! (There's always room for improvement.) It's hard work, but the results are noticeable.
Before physical therapy, I was very frustrated with the exercise limitations I was experiencing. My left leg was stiffening every afternoon, sometimes mornings, just depending on my daily activity. I had experienced physical therapy elsewhere in the past without any success. I wasn’t looking forward to it. You can’t imagine my surprise and pleasure when I noticeably improved after the first session. Eight sessions later, the stiffness has really eased up and my activity levels are almost back to normal. The office in Kaneohe was comfortable and the staff comforting. My special thanks to my therapist’s interesting explanations. Thanks also to the patience of the assistants.
When I walked into the office of Fukuji & Lum, I was depressed and unhappy. I injured my back for the first time in my career and felt that the pain I was experiencing was taking control of my life and prevented me from enjoying the normal activities I participated in. After 16 sessions with the therapist and their assistants and I feel like a new person. I am now fully functional and am again enjoying life. The patience, teaching and care I received here contributed tremendously to getting my life back in order. I learned that a physical injury can also impact your emotional well being too.
