A Patient Experience

 

 

One of my most memorable patient experiences was a man that wanted to walk his daughter down the aisle at her wedding. This gentleman came to me experiencing paralysis and spasticity symptoms, after having a routine total hip replacement and epidural. He was unable to walk without the assistance of Lofstrand crutches, which require the use of both arms and hands.

As physical therapists, we all feel the need to help our patients get better. However, when a patient has a goal such as this, you can not help but be personally involved. We take the time to get to know our patients during their first visit. Helping them to heal quickly and effectively means listening to them.

Often, our patients not only tell us about their pain, but also about their goals and hopes. His was to walk his daughter down the aisle, arm in arm, on her wedding day. Like many of my patients, he was determined but also frustrated. He had a binder where he kept track of everything relating to his condition, which he brought to his appointments to help me gain insight into his history. Together, we made a plan to accomplish his goal.

Patient Outcome: Several months later, after a lot of hard work, he did indeed walk his daughter down the aisle, aided only by a cane. I was honored to be a part of his recovery and it was wonderful to help him with something so meaningful.
