Experience from ACL replacement
“ I was a 67 year old who ruptured the acl tendon in my left knee. Dr. Luchetti thought that my age may hinder recovery so I may not be back to the sport I love, tennis for up to a year. Well thanks to his skilled hands and knowledge, I am back on court in a little less than 8 months(with some restrictions). I cannot express in words enough gratitude to him and the rehab team of Brett Werkheiser and his assistant Stephanie.
Words are not enough to relay not only the professional care that I received but the personal care above and beyond expectations. I am forever indebted to Coordinated Health for the service and care that I received from everyone from the Surgeon to the receptionists. Thank God for what you provided to me and even though I don't expect injuries, I would not hesitate to return or recommend CH for return to healthy life styles.
Again, Thank You ”

“ Just a great experience with Brett and assistant Stephanie. Thanks to the superior knowledge that my therapists possess in rehabbing my surgical repaired knee, I can get back to doing the sport I love, tennis. Unbelievable the professional and personal care I received and because of them, my rehab was accelerated well more than anticipation. Being 67 years old was only a number that was ignored and gave me the confidence to excel. Not only excel but return to my active life in less that 8 months. ACL rehab could not have been any better than the positive outlook that my CH team of Brett and Sephanie gave me. Love you both and Thank You so much, words can't express my gratitude.....Thank You...Frank ”

Hand Therapy with the BEST OT TEAM ever
“ My story began in Mexico with a fall on marble tile. It continued with a brace to allow tendons in my hand to heal. I wore a brace for six long weeks on my right hand. I was so excited when the brace came off and then realized my hand was stuck and did not move or function the way a normal hand should. I learned how to do many common tasks with my left hand. It was not fun and very frustrating at times. I must admit it really stretched my patience at times.
Fortunately for me I went to Coordinated Health and the team of occupational therapists from Bethlehem and Easton helped me. I worked with Denice, Dave, Stephanie, and Ben. Every one of these therapists helped me on my journey to a functional hand. They were all very supportive as I learned how to make my fingers and thumb work again. Simple things like opening a jar, turning a key, and turning a door knob were a challenge. But here’s something to keep in mind-tell the therapist what you want to do and he/she will give you an activity to help achieve it.
All of the therapists I worked with have a sense of humor. When I first started with a clothes pin activity to pick up marbles I inadvertently had Dave scrambling to pick up the ones that escaped my grip. All the therapists listened and sometimes laughed at my method of doing my exercises in a practical manner. For instance, instead of picking up coins, I picked up M & M’s for decorating my M & M cookies. It seriously improved my fine motor skills. Getting my fingers stronger was very therapeutic. The best part was pounding the clay with a round peg.
One of the most important things about therapy is the patient needs to do therapy at home and be seriously invested in healing. Some days I was just not in the mood to play with clay so I did the next best thing: I made cookie dough and yeast dough for cinnamon buns.
I am very grateful to all my therapists. You all cared about me and helped me recover from the worst injury I have had in my life. Thank you very much! ”
