Meet our patient, Marie Cajou. At 86 years old, Marie suffered a stroke that left her with visual impairments in her left eye and reduced spatial awareness along her entire left side. She came to us because she had been spending a lot of time in her wheelchair and developed lower back pain as well as right shoulder pain. She spent two months in physical therapy, treated by Marc Jacobchick, PT, DPT, and came to each visit with a new, brightly colored hat.
According to Marie, her favorite part of the day is when she gets to go to SPEAR and dance to some salsa or merengue music. We’re so grateful to be part of Marie’s healing process because we know that any age, #lifecantwait!
