success story - man on exercise equipment and smilingAfter open heart surgery, Terry came to our facility for short-term rehabilitation services. Terry advanced from 15 minutes of physical therapy programming to over an hour per day using modalities to include the Nu Step.

Due to the surgical wound post heart surgery,  Terry received IV ATB therapy for 6 weeks.  Clinical wound VAC services for 6 weeks promoted healing of the wound to a point that he was discharged with a  simple daily dressing change that he does at home.

Terry has been back to visit his wife, who is a resident of Altoona Nursing & Rehabilitation Center.  He is excited to be home and back to his pre-surgical status.
