Stephanie’s Scar Story
“OPTI has inspired me more than you can imagine. OPTI helped me find myself again. My Physical Therapist never gave up on me which I couldn’t be more grateful for. Thank you for everything!”
I appreciate everything you have done for me. In the beginning, I felt broken and I was mentally down about tearing my ACL. It was a rough time going through an injury and being surrounded by everything that reminded me of the game I loved to play (soccer). I remember the day I started to have some hope was the first time that I was able to jog in the clinic. It was the first time I believed that I could get back to where I used to be. During the rest of my time at physical therapy, I was pretty indecisive with my future of potentially playing college soccer. When my physical therapist and I started having my PT sessions out at the Omaha Sports Complex, I started to get a taste of playing again. It was then I realized I couldn’t walk away from soccer.
OPTI is the one of the biggest reasons why I wanted to play again. Every time I came into the clinic with a negative attitude, my Physical Therapist would lift me up and push me to do my very best. I loved that the PT’s at OPTI only have positive things to say. It’s hard to think about what my journey would have been like if I didn’t go through rehab at OPTI. I also think about every patient in OPTI and how their life would be different if OPTI wasn’t around. I truly can’t imagine a clinic better than OPTI! Even though tearing my ACL wasn’t ideal, I’m glad I did because it gave me the opportunity to get to know all of the staff and solidified my decision to play soccer in college.
I am proud to say I have recently committed to my dream school, South Dakota State University, to play Division I soccer! With the help of OPTI, I was able to make my dreams a reality. OPTI has inspired me more than you can imagine. OPTI has helped me find myself again. I couldn’t be more grateful for my Physical Therapist who never gave up on me. Thank you for everything! You guys are the best!
