Mason Fullerton for #LifeWithoutLimits

Below is a success story submitted by patient Mason Fullerton. His journey reminds us how important engaged, focused PT care is. 

“My name is Mason Fullerton and I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome – a connective joint and tissue disorder.

I have been getting physical therapy since I was ten months old, and now I am 8 years old. At Excel I have been working on my balance and strengthening my ankles because I was falling a lot. I have been at Excel for 3 months. I like Excel because we started out seeing how my ankles are and they built up my strength before I started running, so I would have energy. At my old PT, they would just say run 3 laps for 3 minutes. They didn’t push me too hard. Now I am having fun! I get to throw footballs and do stool racing. I look forward to going to each session and I used to hate going to my old PT.

After 6 weeks of Excel my orthopedic doctor said I improved a lot! That was the first time my mom and I ever heard that! Thanks Excel.”
