Professional Barrel Racer Jimmie Sue Bible Chose E & B

In 2015 I sustained an ACL tear in my left leg after falling off my horse. Dr. Rueff quickly had me fixed up not even 4 weeks after my injury. At this point I was then assigned Joey Baribeau in the Therapy department and Joey is hands down the absolute best! Although my recovery was a long road Joey never gave up on me and made sure I did not walk down the aisle 4 months later with a limp! Fast forward to 3 months ago when I tore my right ACL, the doctors and staff didn’t waste any time and Dr. Rueff got me in for surgery not even 2 weeks after my injury. I started PT at a different location closer to my house, but 2 visits in I really wanted to go back to Joey, so for the next 8 weeks I made the over an hour drive back to therapy because I knew Joey would have me back on a horse in no time, and no time it was. Dr. Rueff released me to get back on a horse just 4 weeks post op (only to go slow), and I was back to competing just 8 weeks post-op!! I cannot thank the staff, doctors and therapists at Ellis and Badenhausen enough. I without a doubt recommend this team to everyone I know and even though I hope to not have a visit to them anytime soon, They will be my first choice back if and when needed! Thank you all again for getting me back in the game before my competitive summer season starts!
