How did this patient hear about the Phoenix?
Details of Experience:
Mr. Clio was admitted to The Phoenix Rehabilitation & Nursing Center after staying at Beth Israel Medical Center.
He was a circus performer for many years until he has been suffering from BLE weakness, pain and numbness.
After the evaluation, he will receive PT and OT 5 days a week. In the beginning, he couldn’t stand for more than a minute because of the pain.
We put him on the machine to exercise his legs slowly. We used hot pads on his legs as well as gave his legs massage every day.
Mr. Clio has a positive mind; he knows what the reason is to be here. He learned how to walk on his own with a walker. He learned how to transfer by himself and dressed by himself.
One of the big achievements he reached in our facility was the stairs exercise. From couldn’t stand for more than a minute to walked two flights up. Also, he had increased tolerance for activities.
