Maize’s Maggie Salsbury – Student Of The Month Presented By Advanced Physical Therapy

By Matt Browning

Maggie Salsbury of Maize was chosen as the Advanced Physical Therapy Athlete of the Month for February. Salsbury received therapy from APT after she suffered a stress fracture in her lower back (L4) from triple jump during track season.

“Everyone that works there (APT) was really nice and knowledgeable on how to help me through the rehab process,” Salsbury said. “I enjoyed working with Kayla Kennedy because she is an athlete, so she knew the best ways to help me and understood that I was trying to get back to my sport.”

Back injuries are susceptible to stiffness post-treatment, so there was one exercise that stood out to Salsbury.

“I think scraping (asthma) really benefited my back because the muscles around the injury got really stiff which was painful,” Salsbury said.

Salsbury said that once an athlete begins working at Advanced Physical Therapy, it is important to find the right therapist to work with.

“It’s important to find a physical therapist you trust and respect,” Salsbury said. “And when you find a good fit be willing to do what they tell you to do, so you can rehab as quickly and effectively as possible.”
