This month we are pleased to feature Michael Graves, Junior, in our Patient Spotlight. A recent knee injury brought Michael to The Smith Clinic, and what a joy it has been getting to know him!
A student at Germantown High School, Michael is a native Memphian, and his favorite thing about living in Memphis is the pyramid. In his free time, Michael enjoys playing football and spending time with his family.
Speaking of family, after experiencing great success through physical therapy at The Smith Clinic, Michael's father, Michael Graves, Sr., became a patient as well! When asked about his experience at the clinic, Michael stated, "They have treated my father and I with such good care and have helped me get back to doing what I love."
In discussing his biggest challenge in doing PT, Michael mentioned staying motivated and continuing to push himself was his biggest hurdle. He also expressed, however, that the process led him to gain more confidence in himself.
Michael's favorite part about coming to The Smith Clinic is, "The loving and welcoming of the staff." The admiration is mutual, Michael! We have loved having you and your dad as patients! You are a kind, bright and determined young man. It has been an honor to work alongside you and a thrill to watch you thrive!
