Long-Term Specialty Care - Neuro Rehabilitation / August 1, 2018
Rehab Without Walls client, Chris Wood, showed amazing progress following serious injuries, including a severely fractured pelvis, fractured clavicle and head injury, which were the result of a bicycling accident.
But, just five months after his discharge from RWW, Chris Wood hiked across steep terrain in England. The team at Northern Nevada RWW knew how far Chris had come to make that hike.
Following his accident, surgery and some inpatient rehabilitation, Chris had been discharged to his home in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. He began treatment there with the RWW team. Chris left a rehabilitation hospital to begin working with RWW, and later progressed from a wheelchair to a platform walker and eventually to using crutches.
Chris’ rehab work started out at up to 19 hours a week and was decreased accordingly as he progressed. The team saw him progress from walking short distances with a platform walker and using a wheelchair outside the home, to using crutches and then a cane, and finally to being able to snowshoe at his last therapy session. He also worked with the treatment team to return to his profession as an attorney.
