Dear Senior Physiotherapist
Re: Mr Stephen Kerry, DOB: 16 June 1963
Mr Stephen Kerry, who has been recuperating from a right knee injury following a fall on the stairs, requires the professional assistance of a physiotherapist for ongoing difficulties with mobility.
On 12 July, Mr Kerry was met with an injured knee followed by limited walking and pain.Paracetamol 400mg was commenced to relieve pain by his General Practitioner when needed. Subsequently, home nursing care support regarding dressing changes, pain management and daily showering has been provided. Despite the pain, he was moving with the assistance of wife.
On review today, Mr Kerry has shown excellent progress and is able to mobilize with the help of an assistive device. However, his wife Jennifer has requested frequent home visits to enhance his motions. Consequently, health education in relation to the importance of physiotherapy to facilitate loss of mobility has been given.
Mr Kerry, an accountant, lives with a supportive wife and expects fast recovery as possible back to work. Even though he is mentally stable, he has been experiencing diminished balance while walking along with mild slurred speech.
Base on the aforementioned circumstance, your expert assessment at home and appropriate physical therapy sessions including strengthening exercises would be extremely beneficial to improve Mr Kerry’s overall disability in walk
