JPT Alumni News Update With Alexi

alexiAlexi Wiemer considers himself lucky. In the winter of 2015, Alexi had a severe fall onto his back from 30 feet while rock climbing. He was rushed to the ER where he was diagnosed with a burst compression at L1-L3 that resulted in spinal fusion surgery from T11-L3. The doctors were not sure he was going to walk again as he had some spinal cord symptoms. But, after doing inpatient rehab at the local hospital for 3 weeks, outpatient physical therapy at Jersey Physical Therapy for 6 weeks and more rehab in Atlanta, GA, Alexi is back running again.

I’ve Made Amazing Progress!

Alexi stopped in to Jersey PT the other day to report his amazing progress. “The staff at Jersey PT went above and beyond for me. They were always there to greet me with a smile, while also encouraging me to push my limits every day. “The therapists at Jersey PT are incredibly knowledgeable and show genuine care for patients. I cannot say enough about the outstanding therapy I received there, and would highly recommend it to any new patients.”

Alexi is now running 10K races and feeling great. Dr. Marc Rubenstein, PT, states, “We were lucky to work with and get to know a person like Alexi. With his dedication and positive attitude, he was able to achieve an amazing recovery.”

Marc recently invited Alexi to run in Eric LeGrand’s 5K next year. Both are looking forward to this great event to promote awareness of spinal cord injuries.
