There was a point in Scott Aldridge’s life when he wondered if he was about to lose the ability to walk. He was 50 years old, 520 pounds, and dealing with chronic venous wounds on his legs.
He wasn’t particularly hopeful that he could get better. But his physical therapist,Stephanie Fournier, PT, DPT, WCS, CLT-LANA, had other ideas.
Three years, more than 300 pounds, lots of physical activity later, Aldridge has an uplifting story worth sharing—and APTA is helping that story find a wider audience.
Aldridge’s transformational story is now part of the Patient Stories section of APTA’s official consumer information website, MoveForwardPT.com. Publication of the story will be followed by a podcast in which Aldridge describes his incredible improvement and Fournier’s role in inspiring that change.
