Resident Success Story: MichaelFebruary 25, 2020
Michael came to us in October due to having a stroke and right leg fracture. Michael was non-weight bearing, hemiparesis with abnormal muscle tone, generalized weakness, and aphasia. With these deficits, he was total assist in all areas. Through the help of the therapy team he is now able to feed himself, has no abnormal tone and full use of hands, able to sit up in a wheelchair for most of the day, and his speech and memory are clear. Michael continues to be on physical therapy as he recently was cleared by ortho to be weight bearing as tolerated to which treatment has focused on standing, balance, transfers, and proprioception of leg.
