Severed Carotid Artery Resulting in a Stroke
Angee Neish of Kansas Joint and Spine treats Charlene, an inspiring young woman who is recovering from a tragic car crash. Charlene was on her way back from Duke University, having evaluated the Medical School there, when her vehicle was struck from behind by a careless tractor trailer. In addition to a broken femur and other serious injuries, Charlene’s carotid artery was severed; she suffered a massive stroke. Her mother drives her nearly one hundred miles for her rehabilitation sessions in the HydroWorx pool, which has helped her progress from being wheelchair-bound to walking with a cane.
