Ron suffered with limited mobility and knee pain for years prior to electing to have knee replacement surgery. During a recent rehab reunion at ManorCare, Ron stated he would be back after having his other knee replaced.
Ron's wife worked full-time and with other major life events going on, Ron needed a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility for 24-hour care to help him get stronger and return home independently. Before the surgery, Ron's bulldog passed away and his recovery motivation was to gt home and get a new bulldog puppy.
At ManorCare Health Services - Naperville, the interdisciplinary team created a customized care plan for Ron. Ron used the state-of-the-art equipment, including the Continuous Passive Motion (CPM) machine to decrease his knee pain and increase his range of motion. Together with his physical and occupational therapists, they were able to improve Ron's range of motion, reinforce safety rules for daily activities and get him comfortable walking again.
BACK TO ACTIVE:
"I was so happy to come back to ManorCare to visit with the staff and schedule my next stay. After I left ManorCare - Naperville, my outpatient therapists were very impressed with my range of motion. I am happy to report I did in fact get my bulldog puppy and I love being able to take him for walks." - Ron
