Lockport resident walks again after near death accident with the help of physical therapy from the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago at Silver Cross in Homer Glen
New Lenox, IL (October 10, 2013) — On April 4, Shay Strickland’s life was dramatically turned upside down. While driving alone three blocks from her home, the 38-year-old lost control of her car. After her car hit a telephone pole, the vehicle rolled and her body went through the back windshield. Fortunately, she didn’t hit another car or person. But she was not wearing her seat belt, and suffered multiple critical injuries including bleeding on the brain, dislocated knee caps, torn knee ligaments, a cut-off artery in her right leg, three broken ribs, a collapsed lung and countless contusions. After multiple surgeries, her ability to ever walk again was bleak. However, as a result of 5 months of physical therapy in The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago’s (RIC) inpatient unit at Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox and at its outpatient facility in Homer Glen, the Lockport resident not only can stand and walk without a limp now, she can even drive a car.
