Veteran scuba diver walking again after therapy at TIRR Memorial Hermann-The Woodlands

THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (August14, 2018)

For Katie Sorrentino, her Mother’s Day scuba dive started off as normal as the hundreds of dives she had completed over the last 35 years. The veteran, licensed diver was on vacation with her family in the Bahamas when she experienced symptoms of decompression sickness or “the bends.” After a month of treatment and regaining some sensation in her legs, she was airlifted to Texas and admitted into TIRR Memorial Hermann-The Woodlands, where she would begin intensive physical and occupational therapy to improve her weakness.
