On March 11 2012 I suffered a serious accident while working on the railway, when I was run over by the rail cars we were switching out and my foot was seriously crushed, my ankle was compound fractured and my rib was broken.After the first surgery I was told that the foot would likely be not very viable and I would eventually need a prosthetic foot. However they did eventually save the foot with further reconstructive surgery, however the chances of returning to work to my original conductors job would be next to impossible given the amount of damage suffered and the demands of climbing up and down ladders and walking on gravel and uneven ground.After much wound care to save the foot from infection,(thank God for the nurses and silver dressing) I was able to begin physio.After starting off with Herman at Moveo, Larissa came on .
 
I received physio treatments every Tues and Thurs day from Sept – June, 10 months. This involved exercises, acupuncture, stretching and message.I could not have asked for better care.Larissa was able to implement the precise strategy to restore muscles in my foot that eventually helped me to recover sufficiently to return to my original job which work safe was arguing that I’d never be able to, given the severity of the injury.
Larissa, was in my court the whole time, stressing and advocating that I was continually making progress and not to dismiss my return so quickly.
 
While the physio care, message , acupuncture was all amazingly thorough, what I really noticed the biggest difference with Moveo was that while Larissa would push me at times, she listened to me when it was too much and eased off, where that was not always the case with other injurys I’d received treatment for in the past, and would be set back because of.
 
Larissa and Moveo played a huge part in my recovery, and I’m now back to work as a road conductor, taking on even bigger challenges and even more gainfully employed than I could have ever hoped or for awhile thought was possible.
 
Thanks to Larissa for never giving up or compromising, I continued to make progress.
 
I hope for everyone who is injured that they will find the same help I did from Moveo.
