Back to winning championships after Achilles tear

When Chris Whitlow ruptured his Achilles tendon in a flag football game, he knew he would be sitting out the rest of the season. Dr. Bailey was easily able to repair Chris's injury and he went home on crutches the very same day with a small, clean incision. 3 weeks later, he got started on his physical therapy with Pat Coar at Resurgens Orthopaedics. Chris and Pat became fast friends and Chris says he appreciated Pat's positivity and straightforward manner. "There were days when it was hard to stay motivated but he helped keep me focused on the progress I was making."
