Darrell came to The Recovery Project in a wheelchair after sustaining injuries to his head, neck, spine and ribs when he fell through the 20-foot-high ceiling of a house he was working on as part of his property preservation business. Accustomed to an active lifestyle, Darrell was suddenly motionless from the waist down. After undergoing five surgeries in five months, Darrell chose The Recovery Project for his high-intensity outpatient physical therapy.
The Recovery Project’s therapist team developed a customized high-intensity therapy program based on Darrell’s unique physical abilities, goals to move and live independently again, and his energetic commitment to his recovery. Through utilizing methods such as functional electrical stimulation and the LiteGait system to increase blood flow and rebuild muscle strength, as well as much movement as possible, Darrell has regained incredible amounts of core strength and is making great strides toward independence—he is even driving on his own now.
