Physical therapist Tami Parker and patient Pam Sedler.

Pam Sedler isn’t the type to sit around her Mayville home. At 66 years old, she’s far from being ready to slow down, and the last thing she wants standing in her way is chronic back pain. “I like to go 100 miles an hour, and that’s just the way I am,” Sedler said. “I want to keep active, and I don’t want an injury to slow me down or stop me from doing the things I really want to do.” Sedler is a go-getter. She plays guitar and piano and sings old country and gospel songs at a local nursing home. She even taught herself how to ride a motorcycle and fell in love with the feeling of wind on her face. She has four grandkids she likes to chase around, and with her husband, bought a camper this summer to explore more of North Dakota. Sedler will be part of a volunteer welcoming crew for Super Bowl 52 next year in the Twin Cities, a job that will require extended time standing on her feet.

She was as enthusiastic about me getting better as I was.” Sedler started by going to physical therapy three times a week and now only goes as needed. During their sessions, Parker tailored stretches and exercises to Sedler’s needs. “Tami taught me not to get discouraged, that anything I do is better than nothing at all and not to push myself to the point of pain,” Sedler said. “That was a big, big help in my healing.”

“That made a big difference,” Sedler said. “Tami did a super job with that treatment.”

Thank you to everyone involved!

Through physical therapy, Sedler wants to get back to being active, walking or working for a few days without stiffness and pain. “I would love to be where I have no discomfort,” Sedler said. “With Tami’s help, I’m getting there.” Sedler and her husband moved to Mayville 14 years ago from nearby Hatton, N.D. Both receive care at Sanford Mayville and can walk from their house to any appointments. “Our facility here is fabulous,” Sedler said. “We have everything we need right here in Mayville. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. We have terrific doctors and an outstanding staff.”
