Gary Sheaffer was doing what he loved, riding his motorcycle, when an accident almost changed his life forever. He suffered multiple injuries including femur and shoulder fractures. All of a sudden, this 46 year old, had to relearn how to walk and take care of himself.
“It’s all about your state of mind, how far you want to progress,” Gary said “the nurses and therapists at HealthSouth Rehabilitation of Mechanicsburg will work closely with you to make sure you achieve your goals." Gary arrived at HealthSouth in a wheelchair, unable to walk, but after working with the team of skilled physical and occupational therapists, he was able to walk out the front doors of our hospital without assistance. “If you give the effort, the therapists will make sure you achieve your goals. All it takes is to be willing and you can go a long way.” Gary said.
Gary continued in HealthSouth’s outpatient therapy center and now enjoys his passion of riding motorcycles once again.
