Meet Teresa…

In December of 2012, Teresa’s life changed. She and her family were driving home when they were involved in a terrible car accident. Everyone was ok…except Teresa. She spent three months in the hospital, two of those three in a coma. When she came through, she was transferred to a nursing home, and then to St. Jude for Physical Therapy treatment. Shortly after, St. Jude referred Teresa to RIO, after the insurance stopped covering treatment. Suffering from severe muscle spasm and Quadriplegia, Teresa came to RIO unable to walk or stand. She’s been at RIO for six months now, and as a result of weekly 45-60 minute Physical Therapy sessions, she’s now able to walk with a platform! Her loving husband Jose, who hasn’t missed a single session, says they’re “very happy with RIO, and will always come back here.”
