Bob was diagnosed with C4/5 cervical myelopathy in April 2014 and had undergone several cardiac surgeries prior, which made it too difficult for him to travel to the clinic to attend physiotherapy sessions. Home visits were instead arranged. Bob suffered from progressive weakness in both his arms and legs and was experiencing difficulty with transfers, bed mobility and toileting. He could not use utensils to feed himself or pick up objects. He remained mostly home-bound due to his low activity tolerance and leg weakness.

After working with a physiotherapist from Neuromotion for over a year, Bob has been able to improve his balance and leg strength to walk with poles outdoors. He has also improved his dexterity to cut his food and feed himself.  He now accompanies his wife grocery shopping and pushes the cart as well as helping out at home to take out the recycling. 

"Mostly I would like to thank my physiotherapist, Helen, for her skill and dexterity in modifying my course of therapy. Her mixture of skill & dexterity have been remarkable & I am pleased with my success with my physical & mental fitness to date. I thank also the Department of Veterans Affairs for helping us to attain this level of improvement. I would be pleased to have your combined support towards further improvement." - Bob
