Looking for Physical Therapist Recommendations

Hi Everyone -

Last week in Oaxaca sweet and vibrant divemaster Jessica took a nasty slip on a rotten mango...she crashed her knee into a curb and shattered her knee cap. After emergency surgery and 2 nights in the hospital, 3 days resting in Oaxaca we finally managed to get her back home to Zihua. It was a pretty hairy trip, but she's back here safe (if not yet sound!). Jess is a full time resident of Zihua for almost 4 years, so all her friends are doing our best to look after her.

In a few weeks she will need to begin physical therapy to get her knee/leg working again. Can you post some recommendations/experiences you have with local physical therapists? We would much appreciate it!!

Also...if you want more info or to help out in other ways...there's this:

Dr. Zamora, Centro del Rehabilitacion, El Hujal. 755 554-8848 or 755 139 6408.
She's also in charge of the Rehabilitacion dept. in Hospital General, in case you have Seguro Popular. She's nice, efficient, thorough. My shoulder feels MUCH better and I'm sure she can help your friend's knee recovery.

In my case, Dr. Zamora did the examination, diagnosis, and wrote the rehab plan. She then recommended a therapist for the actual rehabilitation work. I was very pleased with her knowledge and thoroughness. I think she may be the only medical doctor in town who specializes in rehabilitation.
