Austin’s Ankle Injury Patient Story
After Austin injured his ankle playing basketball, he was referred to CAO physical therapy in Waldorf by Dr. Mark Perry MD, who is a foot and ankle specialist, and was originally placed in a walking boot for 1 week. He was evaluated by Lance Burk Physical therapist, who gave him education on proper ankle bracing techniques and an extensive home exercise program. Austin worked diligently with his home program, and within 3 visits, he was cleared to return to baseball. Shortly after he was able to make the varsity baseball team at Lacki High school.
