ActiveCare PT Celebrity Chef Testimonials
There is no doubt that the life of a professional chef can be a grueling one. It requires standing all day long, with very little time to rest your muscles, and the hours are particularly long. These conditions make it easy for chefs to injure themselves in the kitchen.
ActiveCare Phyical Therapy’s Owner and Managing Director Karena Wu specializes in treating professional chefs for conditions like arthritis and general wear and tear; she even writes a monthly column for the culinary industry magazine “Total Food Service.”
Karena has been working with chef Wylie Dufresne since 2004, once a week for maintenance, but more often as injuries call for it. Dufresne had some positive things to say about his PT of over a decade:
Karena has adjusted virtually every part of my body, from head to toe. 21 years on the line has certainly taken its toll. If it weren’t for Karena, I wouldn’t be able to stand in the kitchen night in and night out doing what I love. She makes the pain go away, and for that I will be forever grateful. – Wylie Dufresne, Chef/Owner, wd~50 and Alder restaurants
