Limb Loss Awareness Month marks its 10th anniversary this month, and here at Encompass Health Morgantown, we would like to raise awareness about living with limb loss.
Carl underwent amputation surgery in November 2020 and recently came to Encompass Health Morgantown for prosthetic gait training. While with us, Carl received physical and occupational therapies focused on learning how to utilize his prosthesis while completing his daily routines.
Carl has been working hard in therapy and the results speak for themselves! Before coming to us, he had been unable to walk since October, but is now walking 100 feet with his new prosthetic! He also is able to complete grooming activities while standing at the sink, ambulate around a kitchen to make a meal and so much more.
We are so proud of Carl and all of his hard work while at inpatient rehabilitation, and we're excited for him to return home with increased independence in his daily routines. #LLAM #LimbLossAwareness
