Tomicko B. came to The Recovery Project with a C-5 quadriplegia incomplete spinal cord injury, requiring minimal assistance with basic transfers, and maximum assistance with floor transfers. He had difficulty moving his legs at all, could not walk, and had poor sitting and standing balance.
As a result of his physical therapy with The Recovery Project, Tomicko is independent in basic transfers, and requires only stand-by assistance with floor transfers. He is walking, un-weighted on a treadmill for 30 minutes, and ambulating short distances with a rolling walker. He has good sitting balance, and better than fair standing balance.
He is continually increasing functional movement in his legs through intense upper and lower extremity and trunk exercises
