Testimonial from Omar and Sierra Calhoun

Omar and Sierra Calhoun come from a basketball-driven family. Omar Calhoun Sr. played basketball professionally in high school and in college; yet, he never made it to the NBA. Semara Calhoun was a star player at Murry Bergtraum High School; yet, she chose family over career in basketball. Omar Jr. and Sierra are fulfilling the dreams of their parents now.

Omar Calhoun Jr. started playing A-level basketball since he was a kid. He was a success as a freshman, as a sophomore, and as a junior. In 2012, he was named New York Player of The Year after averaging 25.7 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.2 steals per game for Christ the King. Now, Omar Calhoun Jr. plays for the UConn Huskies and is likely to become an NBA player in 2016 (included in the NBA Draft as Shooting Guard).

Sierra Calhoun has always been basketball-focused – she started playing basketball at the age of six. In 2015, she was transferred from Christ the King, where she was a four-time member of Christ the King Honor Roll, too.

Being professional basketball players, Omar and Sierra both suffer from knee and ankle problems. They found the help they need at New York Dynamic Neuromuscular Rehabilitation & Physical Therapy Clinic.

Dr. Kalika and the staff used sophisticated diagnostic technologies, such as ultrasound, force plate and C.A.R.E.N (computer assisted rehabilitation environment) for training and C.A.R.E.N.The rehabilitation was very successful.

After seeing Omar’s great results, Sierra also decided to visit Dr. Kalika. After several sessions at the clinic, she has greatly improved her knee and ankle stability. Her basketball results are also on the rise.

Omar and Sierra are thankful to fulfilling the dreams of their parents. We hope that they’ll succeed.
