Nancy L.

Nancy never expected that she'd be admitted to the hospital just one day after her 52nd birthday. Other than giving birth to her children, Nancy had never even been in the hospital.

But then Nancy suffered a stroke. The stroke left her unable to speak, move her right hand and arm and with an unsteady gait. To restore her function, Nancy came to Vibra Rehabilitation Hospital of Denver.

From day one, Nancy made gains in her rehabilitation and demonstrated great potential. Nancy received a minimum of three hours per day of occupational, speech, and physical therapies. Her rehab program included arm and hand exercises, balance training, mirror therapy, speech therapy, and our state-of-the-art Bioness H200 hand unit.

Highly motivated, Nancy worked hard even between therapy sessions, completing her home exercise program and speech therapy homework. Her hard work has definitely paid off! Nancy's speech is much clearer and she has less difficulty finding words. Nancy's balance and walking has also improved to near her baseline. And her right arm has improved immensely as she can now use it during functional tasks like opening a doorknob.

We're thrilled that Nancy discharged home with her family. Because of her determination, we expect her to continue to improve. She truly is a stroke survivor!
