About 18 months ago, I suffered an injury to my left ankle and proceeded to hobble around, taking time off gym and had thought it healed. I was told it was shin splints.

In April of this year, I felt my ankle twist while standing still and continued to go to gym and hobble. A good friend of mine saw my ankle and said, You need to see Dr Stoddard at Semi.
I called and spoke to someone that night and she made an appointment for me to see Dr Stoddard….. first MRI, then back to see him, talk of fracture, xrays to confirm and then I was prescribed an air cast. I was referred to a Practitioner for further treatment. On June 29 I got my cast. As the summer progressed, I was able to see results. Got the cast off on November 7, allowed to walk more, up to 20,000 steps (before I was doing 35,000) and with further treatment, I will continue to improve.

I owe a lot to Dr Stoddard, the Practitioners at Semi, the wonderful front desk staff, Regina, Roxanne and Courtney who made ever visit wonderful.
Thank you! I tell everyone who has ever been hurt to call!
