TAILORED TREATMENTS AND HOLISTIC APPROACHES MAKE WONSETTLER PHYSICAL THERAPY UNIQUE BY FRANCESCA SACCO For Sarah McCarty, the expertise and personalized at- tention that she received at Wonsettler Physical Therapy and Specialized Health have made all the difference in her health over the past year. McCarty couldn't agree more. Last February, the otherwise healthy 35-year-old suf- fered a bilateral pulmonary embolism, or blood clots in both lungs, after delivering her second chikl. "I immediately fell in love with the clinic," she said. "I had many positive experiences from day one." After receiving a personalized treatment plan, MeCarty began therapy several days a week that worked different muscle groups. While the risk for blood clots is very high after delivery, MeCarty never imagined she would suffer complications. "Shortly afterward, I began having issues that many (pulmonary embolism) patients experience, and it wasn't just difficulty breathing, but with the way my body was processing oxygen," the Beallsville resident said. "No matter what, postpartum physical therapy is really important, and it's not something we re- ally do here," she said. "They stretched out my ribs and increased my core strength. They checked my oxygen levels. There are few groups where you'll see the same person every time you visit and spend a full hour with your therapist." Wonsettler said his team focuses on what motivates their patients. McCarty wasalso experiencing unexplainable pain in her side. "I was experiencing constant pain, and I couldn't fig- ure out where it was coming from," she said. "The care that we provide is very centered on what each indivial is trying to get back to," he said. "Some people want to run a marathon. Others want to sleep throughout the night. We've worked with young athletes who are very driven to people well into their 90s just trying to ensure that they can continue to live on their own." Her doctors prescribed opioids, but McCarty said they did little to alleviate her discomfort. McCarty credits her physical therapist's acknowledgment and understanding of pain management in helping her regain pain-free living. "I didn't want to become a statistic. They didn't do anything, so I didn't want to increase the dosage. Noth- ing was working medically, so I decided to give physical therapy a try," McCarty said. "I wanted a more holistic approach and heard a lot of good things about Wonsettler Physical Therapy." "That's the most important thing. They really understand pain management and treat pain holis- tically," she said. "They look at the bigger picture. They want to know what your mental health looks like. If you're doing other things that could help. They worked on my personal pain barrier so that I was able to become pain-free. I'm glad that the opioids didn't work because what my body needed were pain management and a specialized plan." Wonsettler Physical Therapy, located in Scenery Hill, is dedicated to helping patients eliminate barriers that would otherwise prevent successful outcomes through tailored treatment plans and their holistic approach. Their commitment speaks for itself. What started as a small practice has grown in leaps and bounds since opening in 2019, and they now serve roughly 800 patients monthly. Wonsettler said McCarty's story perfectly highlights what his clinic strives for with each patient. "She's undergone a tremendous transformation," he said. "There was a lot of fear associated with movement and activity, and rightfully so. She has way more energy. She's engaged. She's invigorated. A big part of the journey is mindset, and she had to undergo a lot to get her mindset back." In January, McCarty could stop her physical therapy sessions and began personal training at the clinic. Wonsettler said it was an intentional element of his clinic incorporating a transition to wellness. "We try to figure out the best plan of attack for each individual patient to help them achieve the transforma- tion they are after," Cliff Wonsettler, owner and phys- ical therapist, said. "Every single person is completely unique, as are their circumstances. Everything we do revolves around each individual and what they need from us. We're always in search of the best way to get them what they need." "We wanted to create a bridge so that people could continue what they gained and continue to grow stronger," he said. "Plus, they can use our app, which is just another connection point." McCarty is thankful for the clinic's personalized treatment and their unique pain management approach for helping her.
