Learning to Walk Again…

After suffering a stroke in 2006, Linda was left unable to sit up by herself, stand up by herself and was lifted with a hoist by her carers. She was sat in one chair all day every day unable to move from this, or even re-position herself within this chair. In August 2020 Reach Rehab Physiotherapy became involved. Through weekly visits, orthotic management and lots of hard work, Linda is now standing and walking with a stick! She can even walk out of the front of her house down the step, up the road and back. Successful rehabilitation needs time and focused, graded input (not just the provision of a hoist at home). Reach Rehab Physiotherapy will help to advise and source what is required to progress. This may include specific equipment, with specialist reps, working with orthotists and podiatrists to provide bespoke supports / orthotics, working with local services for spasticity management. Help with supporting carers at home so they work with clients during their progression to ensure there continues to be progression and it becomes engrained within day to day activities. Reach Rehab Physiotherapy began rehab with Linda in her home in August 2020. Linda is now walking outside with a quad-stick, can climb up and down her front door step, walk around the indoors of her property. We have worked closely with the local orthotic department as she had not been provided with suitable support for the ankle affected by the stroke. Linda now has custom made foot wear and an ankle support that keep her foto and ankle on the right position to help with her walking.
