Tom, would you please tell me your name?

Narrator: This is no problem and will work to help with that.

I will work mainly on his speech and I will also address the hand and the legs. I will be treating you for about 4 days then your wife will continue with the treatment. Let’s see how we progress. Thank You.

Narrator: My nurse walked by Tom while I was treating another patient and she said she could understand Tom this morning and I was thinking that this was nice then I came here and I asked Tom a couple of questions and I was surprised and amazed.

Tom, tell me you again where we treated you this morning

 

Tom: In my hand and in my throat

 

Narrator: You are amazing, you did real good and we are all very happy. That is incredible. That is as quick as I have ever seen a voice come back.

Tom is young and strong and I am sure that makes a difference. Thank You.
