Improving Pain and Functional Mobility
This 74-year-old gentleman was referred to a skilled nursing facility following hospitalization due to a fall and the development of encephalopathy (infection causing brain damage). He had severe shoulder and knee pain and a decline in functional mobility. Prior to his fall, he lived in a single story home with his wife and walked independently without an assistive device.

He is continuing the rehab journey with home health services and looking forward to making even more progress.
