Dr. Christopher Coleman has been working with Phillip Kellogg, PT, DPT, OCS, and Roland Webster, PT, DPT at PT Solutions of Decatur since 2019.
Phillip recalls helping Christopher prepare for his upcoming TED Talk, “Despite coming into the clinic earlier this year with severe and debilitating low back pain making it nearly impossible for him to transfer from his power wheelchair, Christopher took his PT treatments to heart, and together we were able to see him a few months later independently transfer out of his wheelchair on the TED stage, as a Georgia Tech TEDx Talk guest speaker.”
Phillip continues, “Christopher will attest himself that aging with cerebral palsy is not easy. However, his grace, humor, insight, and determination to live well in the face of life’s challenges are just a few of the numerous reasons why we love serving as his PT team. The physical limitations of cerebral palsy have not defined Christopher, rather his resilience and care for his health despite life’s obstacles are a true testament of what defines Christopher. Christopher’s fortitude is contagious, and his skills as a public speaker and Diversity & Inclusion Consultant have allowed him to inspire patients and clinicians around him daily.”
Thank you, Christopher, for giving us the opportunity to support you as you inspire us all to live life unconfined!
