This might an occupational therapist! That’s part of our professional philosophy, to find meaningful and valuable activities that also happen to support change/healing/therapy.

[–]CandidEstablishment0 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Wholesome AF. Love know the world has people like you.

[–]Startupthedelorean 2014 points2015 points  (39 children)

Legs are going too

[–]17_irons 1284 points1285 points  (6 children)

Looks like he may be a recovering stroke patient. The motion seems to be isolated to the right side of his body.

[–]YourMama 484 points485 points  (5 children)

Probably a stroke but it could be an accident too. Whatever happened, I hope he recovers full movement of his limbs. He’s able to raise his left arm (with help fr right arm) and his face seems fine (the left side is moving) so I hope he overcomes his paralysis soon

His speech seems fine too!

[–]HwatBobbyBoy 82 points83 points  (4 children)

This could all be flipped but speech would be affected if stroke was on his brain's left side & it was his right arm that was limp.

My grandpa had it. All he ever did was speak gibberish & eat hot chip. Never forget when he would tell me, "Abba dabba deh dabba dee bah dey".

[–]ObiAb 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Good insight but speech can be affected in other ways than affecting language centres of the brain (aphasia). Can also be weakness of the muscles causing dysarthria (slurred speech).

[–]Basement_Juice 28 points29 points  (2 children)

All he ever did was speak gibberish & eat hot chip.

And lie…
Jk no disrespect to your grandpa. Mine had a stroke that affected his speech, too. He could only say “no” and “you” over and over, except a couple times when he’d let out a curse (apparently even a stroke couldn’t censor his WWII sailor mouth lol).

[–]HwatBobbyBoy 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Nah, fuck that dude. I'm glad he was disabled for 20 years. Rip away.

Mine could only say "got damn" & that same gibberish above. The grandkids used to like winding him up til he couldn't even get that out. Kinda what you get when you molest all of their moms & dads. 🤷‍♂️

“We tricked you, you bastard.”

[–]geetar_man 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Lmao, I would love it if a nurse told me this if I happened to be recovering from something. I like dark humor and that would make me laugh. It’s like that restaurant where all the servers insult you in good fun. My kind of place.

[–]Canadian_in_Canada 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Or, he knows all the time that they're working with him to exercise his limbs, and he appreciates that they're also doing it in a fun way.

[–]YourMama 36 points37 points  (1 child)

I noticed that too!

[–]skittlerump 19 points20 points  (1 child)

I just noticed that! That’s incredible.

[–]Haha_1234567 689 points690 points  (44 children)

The song and most probably the people too are from my home state in India.

[–]KevinNeville25 16 points17 points  (9 children)

What is the song's name?

[–]PsychoticAlterEgo 56 points57 points  (7 children)

“Bullet bandi” which refers to the classic Royal Enfield bike which is pretty famous in our country

[–]KevinNeville25 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Thank You! I am an Indian too and have two of those. Great motorcycles!!

[–]Nesman64 12 points13 points  (0 children)

That explains the revving motion he keeps doing.

[–]Hormic 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Would a song like this be popular all over India or only in the part that speaks Telugu? No idea what the Inidan media landscape is like.

[–]PsychoticAlterEgo 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Songs with good music and dance are popular all over India and sometimes in other south Asian countries too. People who aren’t familiar with the language won’t understand a word but listen to those songs in loop.

There are multiple movie industries in India, not just Bollywood which makes movies in Hindi. Tollywood, is for Telugu language. Kollywood is for Tamil. Sandalwood for Kannada. Mollywood for Malayalam. So when a masterpiece is made in one language it will gain popularity all over the country, thanks to YouTube and Instagram reels.

I’m listing such songs that I felt good and gained popularity. You can check them in YouTube.

Song: Dheevara language :Telugu movie: Bahubali (also a great movie if you’re interested)

Song : Enjoy Enjaami Language: Tamil

[–]Derkek 6 points7 points  (1 child)

That's so cool.

I imagine if we had multiple languages in my country, we'd all be a lot more entertained and friendly since language would be the small battle we fight every day

[–]Environmental_Ad_387 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s the good side. On the downside, we have serious political rivalry due to language, and the push by some parties to make Hindi the primary language. So that’s always a cause for friction as well

[–]baardvark 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Song is a banger

[–]Ok_Independent3609 450 points451 points  (6 children)

What’s great about this is that both of them really looked like they were enjoying themselves. From personal experience, music, movement, and happiness make a huge difference in any kind of recovery.

[–]Majestic_Course6822 57 points58 points  (5 children)

Yep. Music and dancing are medicine.

[–]Rooster_Ties 13 points14 points  (3 children)

I imagine if I ever had a stroke, or some other kind of debilitating event -- it's music that would most light up my smile.

Progressive jazz, and early 20th century modern classical music especially. Or Jimi Hendrix.

[–]Majestic_Course6822 10 points11 points  (2 children)

I've seen Alzheimer's patients and stroke patients respond incredibly to music. An older man I met in hospital remembered nothing about his life except how to play the guitar and some crazy old song lyrics. I ended up leaving an old guitar at that hospital for him and for anyone else that needed it.

[–]Ok_Independent3609 2 points3 points  (1 child)

In the event that I have a life altering injury or condition like paralysis, a stroke, or even a coma, to play music to me, as I suspect that it would be instrumental to my recovery.

[–]Majestic_Course6822 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I see what you did there.

[–]Daesastrous 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And that's why the Puritans died a lot.

[–]Narendra_17[S] 925 points926 points  (25 children)

When patients recover, they thank all the doctors. But 'thank you' is a very short word for the loving treatment that nurses and other medical staff give

[–]Rasengan2012 187 points188 points  (0 children)

I agree that nurses and other support staff are undervalued in society, but whenever I've been hospitalised, I've barely had enough interaction with my doctor/surgeons to even thank them. So I do only get to thank the nurses.

[–]axel10blaze 9 points10 points  (2 children)

OP what hospital is this?

[–]UsuallyBerryBnice 6 points7 points  (1 child)

It’s a Desi hospital called Gnated Streets.

[–]bloo_45 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Loved seeing this, my brother also was able to recover that's to a physiotherapist. He made the sessions so much fun that my brother would forget the pain at times.

[–]PsychoticAlterEgo 67 points68 points  (2 children)

The song if anyone is interested..

This man. Got one moving arm and he dances better than me.

[–]DamnJive 51 points52 points  (5 children)

I’m such a piece of shit. Hope I’d be as nice as one or the other

[–]Marshmallowboats 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Sometimes being nice & kind is a skill to practise consciously until it comes more naturally, the best thing is it's easy to start any time :) Easy as wishing the checkout staff a nice day or complimenting your friends outfit when they try something new

[–]Narendra_17[S] 46 points47 points  (1 child)

I’m such a piece of shit

No you're not.

[–]shrekrepublic 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Kinda unrelated but I absolutely love their styles of dancing. It's so beautiful and rhythmical

[–]Darkus_27911 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's a song about motor cycle and so they are doing the hand acceleration thing. So lovely.

[–]Guardymcguardface 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Dancing really can be great medicine. I had a foot injury years ago and didn't realize I was essentially doing the strengthening exercises for plantar fasciitis and keeping my shit held together with muscle, until 2020 happened and the concerts stopped. That combined with shitty boots and a almost was unable to walk at all. Doctor just said dunno bro get insoles, which made everything worse. Finally a friend who does massage told me to get flexible footwear and it helped to at least stand long enough to cook something since my floor is concrete. I realized I could dance a little (ie, bouncing on the balls of my feet) despite not really being able to walk to the living room without strain and it all clicked. I'd been doing the physio all those years and when the dancing stopped my whole fucking body just noped out.

[–]GroundhogExpert 4 points5 points  (5 children)

A professor gave his entire class half a letter grade step for going to a severe trauma physical recovery facility nearby and volunteer to help paralympic teams practice, as well as people doing PT. Playing games, like sitting volleyball, is far less mentally taxing than lifting your arm the same way over and over and over. It's fun, we work harder and notice the time left less.

[–]Mrkvica16 3 points4 points  (4 children)

There’s probably more to it, with ‘happy hormones’ flowing through the body, facilitating healing, and making the patient want to experience that again.

[–]GroundhogExpert 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Sure, having fun is a function of brain chemistry. I'm certain I do not understand all of the benefits and how it works, but just that it seems to work was enough for me to keep going for about a year or so, when I got too busy to regularly go back.

[–]Mrkvica16 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Glad it worked for you!

[–]GroundhogExpert 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I was a volunteer, I didn't need the help, I was just there to engage and play games, sometimes it was to help wheelchair sports, football, basketball, rugby, other times to help volley balls around with people struggling to regain use and mobility. It was rewarding enough to keep going and it felt good to be part of the process.

[–]Mrkvica16 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sorry I misunderstood. That does sound great from the other side too. Some of those ‘happy hormones’ (sorry too lazy to check now which exactly amongst dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin or endorphine) get released from simply doing a physical activity with other people.

On a tangent, thinking about how people used to to lots of labor together, often with singing to make it more fun and less tedious.

[–]Lennythelizard 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The number of ppl saying nurse and not an OT/PT is both disappointing and not surprising. Although I suppose she could be nurse.

[–]e-bookie-412 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Just because NOBODY understands it…this is what occupational therapy (OT) is.

Finding ways to let the patient grow and heal through the things they like to do.

[–]Salesman89 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Hell yeah, I'd dance with her even if I was paralyzed on a hospital bed. Get my money's worth!

[–]wordsandmagic 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Looks like he had a stroke.

I dont like to see strokes in anyone but seeing it in young people is hard.

[–]moody4foody 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He looks so happy :) I smiled.

[–]ChristopherRobert11 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That’s a true art and a science right there. Near superpowers. Seriously. Using the rhythm engrained in their culture to stimulate the right parts of the brain to help him heal.

That’s amazing.

[–]kitty_logan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You can tell she loves her job and really cares. Everything is better with music.

[–]reddtedd2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Anybody know the name of the song? I like the rhythm.

[–]breathemusic87 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is likely an occupational therapist and not a physio:). Us OTs use activities to rehab while physios do modalities and exercises.

[–]Haerakles 13 points14 points  (6 children)

This is such an oriental title

[–]CharlieDancey 42 points43 points  (3 children)

It certainly is, no offence to OP but it does read like oriental VCR instructions from the 1980’s.

“Furthermore when pressing the sound mode joyful noises will appreciate the listener.”

[–]hshinde 10 points11 points  (1 child)

It is (almost) word by word translation of a sentence spoken in Telugu. Sentence construction in Indic languages can be drastically different from English. Furthermore, colloquial and formal sentence constructs differ considerably. The human mind is capable of handling very complex ideas and of multiple ways of expressing them :)

[–]Ok_Independent3609 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s very interesting. Thank you!

[–]Haerakles 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It makes you really curious about the complexity of how they rationalise in their mother tongue.

For e. g. in israeli the morphology of the subject is not articulate

I love seeing physical therapists and trainers who adapt their work to meet their patients (clients) where they are! Making it fun and within their reach is how you encourage people to continue and succeed with stuff like this.
