Success Is In Your Hands

Posted by

  Ranching is a way of life for this young man. That includes riding horses, roping, bronco riding, training horses and yes, firearms. Like the Rodeo, life can change in as little as eight seconds. Just like it did for Jayce. Several months ago, he had an accidental discharge of a hand gun that penetrated his hand resulting in severe trauma. Three surgeries and countless hours of Occupational Therapy later, he is able to return to the things that he loves. He found these work gloves that he now wears as he works to remind him that “Success is in your hands”. Thank you Kari Reddin, OT for all your help getting Jayce back to working and doing what he loves!   (Printed with permission from Jayce...

Still Going Strong

Gary Eugene Krabbe February 28, 1965 – February 12, 2018 “Gary Eugene Krabbe passed away peacefully at his home with his family by his side. While cancer was the cause of his early passing, he did not lose his battle but triumphed greatly in the way he lived each and every day.” Gary’s expectation for everyone, employees and patients alike, was that we always challenge ourselves, pursue our dreams and achieve our goals. He was a role model for doing what he loved, and loving what he did! There are no words to express how much he has done for us or how much we will miss him. As we transition into a new era with In Motion Therapy, we will hold Gary in our hearts and daily actions. Our clinics will continue to offer the best physical, occupational and hand therapy and athletic training services on the Western Slope. We will continue to grow in response to the needs of our community and provide best-in-class, compassionate, person-centered care.  ...

Fence On, My Friend

Posted by

A few years ago, I worried that my fencing career might be over. I had sustained an injury to my knuckle during a national tournament, and had re-injured it while training. I wondered if I could hold a foil again. During a Magic Circle Theater rehearsal, Gary Krabbe noticed the K/T tape on my hand, and asked me about it. I told him about the unsuccessful physical therapy I’d been undergoing, and about the worry I had about a fencing career that had been showing some promise. I’d made it to the finals strip at a national tournament… never actually won that level of tournament, but I thought I could see a road towards eventually representing the United States at the veteran world championships. That dream was fading because of this injury. He knew more in seconds than my physical therapist had been able to figure out in months. He successfully diagnosed my injury, right there at rehearsal, and then invited me to his office at my convenience, which was, as it turned out, outside of office hours. He hand-fashioned a splint and helped me find a way to hold the foil without pain. He showed me how to use a combination of K/T tape and the splint to protect the joint and allow it to heal, while still being able to train. He and his wife took some fencing classes with me (www.ourayswordplay.org), which was such a pleasure, and he brought his eager, curious spirit to every interaction. He followed up with my injury, too, and with the splint: when I broke it through intense use, he repaired it and made me another. And therefore I could keep training.   Then I went and won a tournament. And another. Within a year I was ranked #1 in my age group. And this past year, once I aged into the division that gets to compete at the international level, I made the team, went to the world championships in Maribor Slovenia, and placed 14th in a strong field of fencers. 55 countries were represented! I fenced guys from Australia, Austria, Brazil, France, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Russia, Slovakia, and Switzerland. What a thrill. I got to represent the United States at the world championships. ​And I do not believe it would have been possible were it not for Gary’s extraordinary curiosity, friendliness, competence, and eagerness to help. So grateful to know this man. Many thanks, Gary, to you and to your practice. ~ John...
