Alex Moore Injury Rehab: One Week After Surgery

Many people have warned me that physical therapy won’t be easy and that I have to always remind myself the harder I work at this the stronger and faster I will be when I return. The best news from my standpoint is that I finally can be in control of where I go from here. Thanks for all of the support and encouragement so far as my journey to recovery continues. In a short three weeks, I’ll be walking without the assistance of crutches and the constant help from other people.
