Physical Therapy Success Story: Benny B.

Fountainview Resident Benny

Benny B. recovered from Covid 19 in December, however, he continued to have muscle weakness in his lower extremities for several weeks following his illness. Benny’s continued muscle weakness was negatively impacting his balance and functional mobility around the facility. He was evaluated by physical therapy and a personalized plan of care was created to help Benny regain his muscle strength and improve his balance and safety with mobility. Benny worked hard five days a week with physical therapy and remained active around the facility throughout his program. After four weeks of PT Benny has made a full recovery and is feeling stronger. His endurance and balance have improved greatly and he enjoys helping out both around the facility and outdoors as part of his therapeutic work that helps him to maintain his strength. We are so glad you’re feeling better Benny!
