Quadriplegia while seated at the office?

Posted Sep 14 2008 3:35pm

Imt The Atlanta Journal-Constitution highlights an interesting case of quadriplegia and a solid article on physical therapy. I think the article is referencing Intensive Movement Therapy (IMT), although it is difficult to read through the 'every-man' translation of what was actually being done.

I have one thought on IMT, regardless of whether this article is about that type of intervention or not. The above picture is reflective of most IMT treatments I've seen, with the physical therapist repetitively facilitating a gait pattern for long periods of time. My thought, is that the posture and disregard for body mechanics I often see is unfortunate for those therapists performing the chore. My bum knee would never tolerate providing that treatment!
