I tore my ACL playing football for Deep Creek High School. My doctor at CHKD was phenomenal. She made me feel comfortable and she explained everything I needed to know about my treatment.

After having surgery, my treatment plan consisted of a lot of physical therapy to regain my strength and mobility – lots of wall sits, squats, step-ups, lunges, and so much more.

The atmosphere CHKD’s sports medicine gym at Landstown is lively and the best part is that there are other kids there my own age, going through the same thing, and the physical therapists are always there to help. It’s a lot of fun and a very positive atmosphere.

I would definitely recommend CHKD because it’s been a wonderful experience; everyone is so nice and knowledgeable.

I love the camaraderie that comes with playing on a team. It’s like family. I found the same family feeling at CHKD. I love my physical therapists and working with everyone. It makes physical therapy fun.

I’m so thankful CHKD helped me regain my strength so that my dream of playing in college can become reality.
