NMMC Physical Therapist Surprises Chaney
Chaney McCullough, 3, of Tupelo recently got fitted for a new leg brace at North Mississippi Medical Center’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Center. Chaney suffered a brain hemorrhage when she was born prematurely, causing her to have difficulty performing motor skills with her right extremities. She started therapy at NMMC when she was only 6 months old and began wearing a brace on her right leg at around 1 year of age. As she grows, Chaney requires a new brace—but this time along with her new brace, she got a big surprise.
NMMC physical therapist assistant Connie Credille and Regina Grimes, a physical therapist with Southern Mobility Specialists, also had leg braces for Chaney’s American Girl doll, Holly. “It was the sweetest thing,” says Chaney’s mother, Betsy. “We love our Longtown crew.”
