Every monthly donation helps more patients like Mallappa get physiotherapy
Mallappa's life came crashing in front of his eyes after he broke his back during a train accident. Having injured his spinal cord, he was bedridden and could no longer move or perform any basic tasks independently. Ridden with wounds and bed sores, he luckily found out about Samuha's spinal cord rehabilitation unit and enrolled himself at their center for 3 months.
While at the center, the staff focused on strengthening his upper body and stretching his lower limbs through balance activities, gait training, bowel and bladder management, and ADSL management. After undergoing physiotherapy and counseling for 3 months at the Samarthya SRC, he has finally recovered from his wounds and has learned adaptive techniques that help him accomplish day to day tasks.
From being completely dependent on his mother to performing all his daily living activities by himself in his wheelchair, Mallappa has come a long way.
