Physical therapy heals troops

U.S. Air Force Maj. Justin Martin, 20th Medical Group physical therapy flight commander and a native of Fairfield, Idaho, instructs U.S. Army Lt. Col. Tess Wardell, Third Army/ARCENT information operation branch chief and a native of Elizabethtown, Ky., on different stretches to help manage the pain in her thigh during a physical therapy examination at Shaw Air Force Base, S.C., July 23, 2012. The purpose of those stretches is to build strength, flexibility and mobility in Wardell's thigh, which will in turn decrease pain and prevent future injuries.
