Brandon Taylor

Since 2006, Brandon Taylor has worked at the Sportsdrome Speedway. Thirteen years into his career, Brandon was involved in a tragic accident when one of the cars struck him during a race. Though his injuries were not life-threatening, he suffered a horrible leg injury in the accident, known as a closed bicondylar fracture of the right tibial plateau. As a result, he spent the next several years in physical therapy.

Conner Davis

Conner Davis was having a pretty good day for a young man of 21. He had taken the day off work from his construction job to take his girlfriend to a doctor’s appointment. Sitting in the parking lot waiting for his girlfriend, Conner began to feel hungry. Then the headache started. By the time his girlfriend returned to the car, Conner’s headache was so bad he felt like he would throw up.

Karen Ricci

Karen Ricci remembers the morning of her stroke. Like so many of us, she woke up tired and lay in bed contemplating the day ahead. Karen even debated going to her volunteer appointment.

Susan Ellenbrand

When Susan Ellenbrand arrived for an appointment with her neurosurgeon, Dr. John Serak, she wasn’t herself. Susan’s arms and legs were completely numb, and she couldn’t walk. Dr. Serak sent her straight to Baptist Floyd Hospital for a thorough exam. A CT scan showed that Susan had a compressed spinal cord.

David R.

While working at his house one day, David’s knee gave out. He fell backward and landed on concrete, breaking his left femur and sustaining a unilateral hip fracture.

Jackie Fosnot

When she arrived at SIRH, Jackie’s therapists evaluated her for the EksoNR exoskeleton. They determined Jackie was a good fit because the exoskeleton helps retrain the brain to use the muscles in a correct walking pattern. Jackie has been using the EksoNR in her therapy for the last two months and sees a tremendous improvement in her pain and range of motion

Mark Sanders

“I can’t breathe. I need help.”

Those words, uttered by Mark Sanders to his daughter, marked the beginning of his long battle with COVID-19.

Tony Dewitt

Upon working with Tony, his therapists determined he may benefit from working with the EksoNR robotic exoskeleton. The EksoNR helps patients stand, work on balance, and most importantly, begin taking steps when they may not feel steady enough to do so on their own.

Gavin Jackson

Gavin Jackson came to SIRH for outpatient therapy after discovering his shoulder growth plate wasn’t completely closed. He completed therapy and looks forward to playing baseball again.

Christopher Herron

Christopher Herron lost function in his right arm and leg after suffering three back-to-back strokes. After working through inpatient and outpatient therapy, he is now walking again.
