Inman’s Talon Welch – Student Of The Month Presented By Advanced Physical Therapy

By Matt Browning

Talon Welch of Inman was chosen as the Advanced Physical Therapy Athlete of the Month for February. Welch, who is a football and basketball player for the Teutons, had to receive therapy at APT after he tore is ACL and meniscus in his right knee.

Welch was playing basketball, came down for a rebound on his right knee and suffered the injury.

“The impressive thing about Advanced Physical Therapy was how friendly everyone is,” Welch said. “I never felt uncomfortable even in the beginning. I enjoyed the support from whoever I was working with the days I was there.”

There is one specific exercise Welch used at APT that stood out to him as more beneficial than others.

The exercise that has benefitted me the most is BFR,” Welch said. “The exercise consists of putting blood flow restriction cuffs on my legs that tire them out quicker and has helped a lot with putting muscle mass back onto my leg.”

Welch said he would not have changed anything about his post-injury experience at APT and appreciates the staff who helped him.
