Mike Shadday’s spinal stroke is rare and it’s even rarer in someone in their 20s. With only a little movement in the toes and ankle of one foot, Mike didn’t know if he would ever walk again. He has made tremendous progress through his rehab as an inpatient at Gaylord. Mike attributes much of his recovery to a lot of hard work infused with the support of his girlfriend, Haley, his family, and his team of nurses and therapy staff at Gaylord. Mike, and Haley, who is an occupational therapist, carefully researched where he should go for his rehab. As a result of extensive physical, occupational and aquatic therapy, Mike was able to walk out of Gaylord with a walker.
