Every day there are amazing Twin Cities Orthopedics patients overcoming fears, pushing their limits, and coming back from injuries. Whether they’re an athlete trying to get back to competition, or an active adult trying to get their normal life back, the journey can be tough. We’re honored to be surrounded by such a powerful community of people who overcome adversity, push themselves to new mental and physical limits, and – most importantly – lift up those around them. We hope the amazing stories below will be an inspiration to anyone facing their own comeback journey.
A beautiful 4th of July on her family’s boat took a serious turn when 10-year-old Savannah fractured her ankle while wake surfing.
Savannah developed a love for running and not being able to run was devastating, but she was determined to come back from her injury stronger than ever before.
From diagnosis at a TCO Orthopedic Urgent Care location, to physical therapy at Training HAUS in Eagan, Savannah had a full care team supporting her recovery and getting her back on the pavement. With a positive attitude and lots of dedication, she was back running the Girls on the Run 5K just four months after her injury.
During her pursuit for another Paralympic gold medal at the Rio 2016 Paralympic games, swimmer Mallory Weggemann severely injured her arm. For many athletes, it would have meant the end of a career, but Mallory’s not like most athletes.
Instead of giving up, she is working harder than ever to once again shatter expectations.
