Sani Mäkelä

Gymnast, pupil

I’m an active 12 year old gymnast. I went to Pippa’s office because of sudden pain in my knee. She told me that it was the Osgood-Schlatter disease. It’s typical for adolescents who practice a lot. Pippa tested my knee during the reception and follow-up visits, and she gave me good rehabilitation instructions. Because of her, my problem is well under control and I can fully practice and compete.

Pippa is a lot like Diadra; happy and breezy. I feel that Pippa likes to be a doctor so much that she probably lifts up her legs at the end of the day and starts reading sports magazines. If she wasn’t a doctor, she would probably be the best physiotherapist or children’s nurse of Finland.
