We have an incredible ONS testimonial sent to us that shares about how Victoria made it to The Cheerleading Worlds Competitions 2015.
Victoria, like any other athlete, was in great physical condition and worked hard with her cheerleading teammates the Xtreme Cheer CT Inferno, to learn routines for competitions before injuring her right ankle.
Victoria’s team travels throughout the region competing in cheerleading competitions working toward big events like The Cheerleading Worlds competition. With determination and the guidance from her ONS orthopedic surgeon and foot and ankle specialist Dr. Sean Peden, Victoria was determined to follow her physical therapy instructions and work with ONS Physical Therapist Bryna Solon, PT, DPT on exercises to help heal her ankle. During the recovery process, Victoria attended each of the events her team competed in wearing her uniform. Four months later, Victoria was fully healed and onstage competing at Orlando Florida’s Disney Land in The Cheerleading Worlds Competition hosted by the United States All Star Federation.
“My daughter Victoria and I will be forever grateful to Dr. Peden for his incredible care. Just four months ago, she had a medial malleolus fracture of her right ankle. As the flyer on a competitive All-Star Cheer Team, this could have ended her ability to pursue her passion – something that would have devastated her.
On December 10th, Dr. Peden performed surgery. On April 25th, Victoria not only competed with Xtreme Cheer CT Inferno, but her team placed 21st out of 39 teams in the Co-ed International Level 5 Team Division at The Cheerleading Worlds – the pinnacle of competitive cheer. I would never believe this would have been possible. Thank you to everyone at ONS!”
ONS is very proud of Victoria’s physical progress, cheerleading performance and her team’s placement at Worlds 2015! We are so happy to these fantastic photos. Congratulations Victoria and teammates! (VL)
