Warmth, Sympathy And Humor As The Best Therapy

Cynergy Physical Therapy solves problems with functionality that others can’t because they have the best equipment and machine that makes recovery and rehabilitation more effective and complete. Each patient has unique needs and sometimes the best kind of therapy provided is warmth, sympathy and sense of humor for speedy recovery.

Last week a tragic shooting happened near Smith Mountain Lake that killed WDBJ7’s Alison Parker and Adam Ward while they were broadcasting on air. Vicki Gardner was the only survivor in that live interview but suffered a gunshot wound at her back. Vicki Gardner’s condition continues to improve and updates about her condition are being posted on her Facebook’s Vicki Recovery Page.

According to Vicki’s husband, the gunman missed Vicki twice so that she had enough time to dive to the ground and curl up into a ball. However, the gunman managed to shoot her on the back. After the attack, Vicki got up and walked to the ambulance even if she did not know the extent of her injuries. A couple of centimeters more and Vicki will not be walking alive.

According to a status update that was posted last Monday, Vicki is attempting sleep and she is also trying to adapt to her nocturnal lifestyle. The nurses want to help her sleep so that Vicki is tortured with jokes which she considered as barbaric physical therapy. According to the nurses, the more that Vicki complains about being uncomfortable the better is her recovery and they are trying to speed up the process.

Vicki also loves all the positive messages she has been receiving both online and in writing. All the comments are fun to read and they keep Vicki occupied. If you send Vicki a funny story, it will be read to her so that her progress will be faster. However, Vicki has undergone several surgeries during her medically induced coma and it will take her about 3 months to recover with medical guidance and physical therapy.

Vicki always wants to converse with everyone and to give the very best of herself but this time it is different. Vicki has to conserve all her energy so that she can finally go home and get better.
