#Parkinsons disease has changed the course of 82-year-old Arturo Rodriguezs life. Diagnosed in 2013, he began home therapy to cope with the muscle rigidity, tremors and walking challenges that accompany the disease. However, the problems persisted. After he and his wife, May, cycled through several treatment options, including a nursing home, Mr. Rodriguez realized he needed therapy that addressed him as a whole person, not a collection of symptoms. He and his wife chose Select Rehabilitation Hospital of San Antonio. This disease doesnt define a person. A person with Parkinsons is still a person with feelings and needs, Mr. Rodriguez said. Here, they treat me like a human being, instead of a diagnosis. From the receptionist to his physicians, Dr. Ivan Edwards and Dr. Phil Onghai, to the nursing staff and aides, everyone has treated him with respect, he said. That kindness has made it easier to power through the intense physical therapy sessions to help correct his muscle atrophy and walking disorders. Hes even tried a few interesting approaches to therapy, such as walking and punching at the same time to re-learn coordination. The boxing gloves were a fun and functional touch. Speech therapy is helping him overcome swallowing difficulties and enjoy food again. In occupational therapy, hes working on dressing himself and brushing his teeth. Its his goal, he said, to spend time with his wife in leisure, rather than having her be his caregiver. Theyve given me hope and purpose, Mr. Rodriguez said. I want to defeat the common assumption that a person with Parkinsons cant do anything. They have helped me believe that I can.

Food plays a significant role in recovery following a serious illness or injury. A well-nourished patient can better participate in physical, occupational and speech therapy. While all Select Medicals inpatient rehabilitation hospitals are equipped to handle special dietary requests, West Gables Rehabilitation Hospital stands out. Situated in south Floridas vibrant Cuban-American community, the dietary staff prides itself on home-cooked, culturally significant dishes. Theyre comfort food for many patients, families and visitors. Food brings people together, said Mike Brehm, dietary manager. When youre in the hospital, you need a boost to your spirits. Our food has really strong flavors, and its made with passion. Under the direction of Head Chef Jose Ramirez, the kitchen staff whips up Cuban favorites such as oxtail stew (thick, hearty braised oxtail meat) and imperial rice (layers of rice, chicken and cheese.) The hospital also makes its own purees for patients with swallowing challenges, unlike many other hospitals. The patients medical team dictates the appropriate consistency. The dietary team ensures it tastes great no matter how its made. They use the same ingredients, sauces and spices to whet appetites whether its a typical meal offered to visitors in the hospital cafeteria or a puree for patients just learning to swallow again. No meal is complete at West Gables without a steaming cup of rich Cuban coffee or a caf con leche. When youre here trying to get better, the therapy is important, Mike said. But other things are important too. We all get a little giddy when we get a patient satisfaction survey and they say I loved the food or I came here because of the food. It makes us feel good to know that our food made someone else feel better. Learn more about all the ways our Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospitals can #restorehope: http://ow.ly/CEOA30eXqVH

Amanda Carlson was on a routine trip around town, starting to take a left turn into an intersection. Suddenly the side of her car was rammed and that force was instantly equaled by a second slam to the back end. Then all went black. The massive car accident left the 28-year-old mother fighting for her life as she was rushed to the local hospital. She had multiple injuries, most seriously two brain bleeds, swelling and constant seizure activity. Doctors in the intensive care unit tended to her injuries, brought the brain swell down, and sedated her to control the seizures. After stabilizing, Amanda transferred for ongoing healing and 24/7 medical care to HonorHealth Rehabilitation Hospital in Scottsdale, AZ. There, she awoke from a three-week coma. On a ventilator and feeding tube, Amanda couldnt speak though she was responsive to her family. Our biggest questions were would she be able to talk again, walk and feed herself, said her stepfather, Dan Secklin As her body continued to heal, HonorHealths rehabilitative team of physical, occupational, speech therapists and counselors got to work with multiple daily therapy sessions. Speech therapy trained her throat muscles to swallow progressively thicker liquids. Simultaneously, physical and occupational therapy put her through mental exercises to rebuild her cognitive abilities. She weaned from the ventilator and set two goals: remove the feeding tube and recover enough to play with her 2-year-old son. After two-plus months of hard work, Amanda left the hospital walking. A week later, she shed her feeding tube and is now beginning to keep up with her son. She also participates in an outpatient program continuing to build her cognitive abilities and strength. My goal is to get back to somewhat normal; it was a brain injury, so I know Im not going to be 100 percent, but the trained social worker adds, I will be OK.
