Professional Physical Therapy and the amazing comeback story of patient Rajiv Maragh were featured on NBC Sports. In July 2015, in Belmont Park while racing, Rajiv’s horse went down head first, and he was thrown from the horse, which fell on top of him. He suffered multiple spinal fractures, broken ribs, and a collapsed lung.
Rajiv has been a Professional Physical Therapy patient for several months and has been treated by both Tim Mauro and Rob Garrick. In October 2016, just 15 months after he was injured, Rajiv got back on a horse again, and tweeted “This feels like a dream … can’t believe I’m actually on a horse for the first time since my injury last July … Monumental day in my life.”
The news clip below describes Rajiv’s inspiring journey from his injury to recovery. Rajiv is also shown working out in the Garden City Performance Center with Rob Garrick and Tara Romeo. The clip aired on Saturday, May 6th, before the Kentucky Derby.
