Joe became a resident at Majestic Care of Sheridan in 2017. Recently, Joe was noted to have stiffness, decreased range of motion and decreased strength in his left lower extremity, which made functional transfers and wheelchair mobility around the facility very difficult. Majestic Care of Sheridan and Reliant Rehabilitation initially worked with Joe 5 days a week to increase the range of motion and strength in his left leg.
Joe has worked hard with physical therapy. He has achieved maximum range of motion and strength in his left leg, resulting in increased standing tolerance and balance, making functional transfers safer and wheelchair mobility easier. Joe enjoys being able to move around the facility independently in his wheelchair again. He is currently working with physical therapy 2 days a week to maintain the function he has gained. Great job, Joe!
