Overview

This book tells the stories of how individuals with physical disabilities have been helped, and continue to be helped, by two very different types of therapies. It tells about the more conventional rehabilitation therapies that have been provided at Lakeshore Hospital. And it tells about the incredible boosts to quality of life that the Lakeshore Foundation provides with sports, recreation, and fitness programs tailored for those with physical disabilities. The internationally known Lakeshore Foundation and those served by it occupy the primary spotlight in this book. This is a foundation that is affiliated with the U.S. Olympics/Paralymics as an official training site. It is a foundation that is home base for far-reaching programs of sports, recreation, and fitness tailored for military personnel with physical disabilities, many of whom have been injured in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. But the book serves a purpose beyond Lakeshore and beyond Lakeshore's staff and client family, because the innovations and practices at Lakeshore draw from the steady advances that have been made in recent years in rehabilitation, recreation, sports, and fitness for the physically disabled. Mike Stephens and Lakeshore have been a leader in these advances, but they have also closely watched and learned from advances at other facililities. Thus this book will have usefulness and meaning to those similarly engaged in these programs at facilities around the world. Likewise, the stories of the remarkable individuals told in these pages will be inspiring to both the physically disabled and the able-bodied whoever and wherever they are, even if they have no direct connection to Lakeshore.
