Fractured Pelvis & Elbow following a fall at home - from being unable to walk to walking to the shops for a paper with sticks!!

At HomePhysio By Nicola Ltd, we pride ourselves on transforming lives through personalised physiotherapy. Today, we are thrilled to share the inspiring story of one of our remarkable clients, whose journey from injury to independence exemplifies the power of dedication and expert care.

The Beginning: Overcoming Severe Injuries

On June 29, 2023, we conducted the initial assessment for our client who had suffered a significant setback two months earlier. She had fallen and broken her pelvis and right elbow. At the time, she was mobilising with a pulpit frame and required assistance for basic activities such as getting in and out of bed, washing, and dressing. Her injuries confined her to the ground floor of her home, as she was unable to navigate stairs or use the stairlift.

The Road to Recovery: Progress in Motion

Initially working collaboratively with NHS physiotherapists and HomePhysio By Nicola Ltd and then exclusively with our team, our client embarked on a rigorous rehabilitation journey. Within just two months, she had made remarkable progress working with Amanda Bell our Technical Instructor Physiotherapy Assistant with strengthening, balance and exercise tolerance. She transitioned to using a four-wheeled walker (4WW) independently within her home. This achievement marked a significant step towards regaining her independence and boosting her confidence.

By the third month, our client had further advanced in her recovery. She began living upstairs, using the stairlift independently and practicing stairs with a walking stick under our guidance. Moreover, she achieved her goal of walking to town with her 4WW, ahead of the initial schedule we had set. A long term goal from the beginning of her rehabilitation journey.

A Year of Transformation: Independence Restored

As we approach a year since our client began her journey with HomePhysio By Nicola Ltd, her transformation has been extraordinary. She has returned to independent living, managing all her personal care needs, and can access all areas of her home with the assistance of one walking stick. Outdoors, she now uses two walking sticks for mobility. Our upcoming sessions with Amanda aim to further her independence by enabling her to visit the shops on her own, using only her walking sticks to buy her daily paper.
