One year ago my doctor recommended that I take the class 4 Weeks to a Healthier You. Included in the class was a month-long membership to the YMCA, which was exciting to me because my home plan was not working.
I had suffered from a knee injury prior to joining the Y, so I was particularly interested in the physical therapy program. I made an appointment with Jackie, who was very understanding and helpful. She was motivational, energetic and committed to helping me improve. Jackie designed a water plan and machine plan for me, which was very easy to follow and inspired me to continue on my own.
I have had great success with the physical therapy, classes and staff at the Y. Miranda, a medical program instructor, has tested me several times, and I have improved in multiple areas. I have also made many friends since joining the Y and enjoy seeing them on a daily basis. We are all getting healthier on our journey!
Thanks for sharing your story, Deb! The services mentioned are currently available at the Indianola YMCA, Wellmark YMCA and YMCA Healthy Living Center.
