In July 2006 I was involved in a near-fatal car accident in my neighbourhood, when a car didn’t stop at a stop sign and crashed into mine, which resulted in me being thrown out of the window after crashing head first into the wind screen. I got cuts on my head, dislocated my left shoulder and fractured my spinal code on C6 and C5, which left me paralysed from the neck down.
I was operated on in the Avenues by Professor Kalangu, and was referred to St Giles Rehabilitation centre where I spent 8 months doing physical therapy. I was later discharged when I could sit in a wheel chair. I carried on doing therapy with St Giles as well as rehabilitation exercises at a local gym. Very little progress was noted till Prof. Kalangu referred me to Jacquie Simpson’s care. After a few sessions with her I was both psychologically and physically uplifted. I managed to get movements in both of my legs and right hand. Soon I could stand and leave the wheelchair to do exercises. Therapy with Jacquie really worked wonders. I won’t hesitate to recommend anyone who finds himself in a situation like mine to see Jacquie first before trying other forms of therapy like I did.
