Congratulations to Philip Strong who recently completed our intensive stroke program with fantastic results. Two years after his stroke, Philip was finding it hard to manage independently at home and required significant assistance for dressing, showering and getting around. Philip’s son heard about our program through the Stroke Recovery Association and made the trip up from Canberra to find out if we could help his father. Philip took to therapy with 110 percent every session and won our hearts with his enthusiasm and cheerful manner. Philip received up to 3 hours of therapy on most days of the week for a month. His program consisted of individual neurological physiotherapy and speech pathology sessions, fabrication of a customised carbon-fibre AFO, botox to his tibialis posterior, supervised circuit classes, independent gym sessions, neurological acupuncture and a medication review.
