Not everyone can turn personal tragedy into a wonderful success story, but that’s what Dr. Dale Hull did with his organization, Neuroworx in Sandy. Following an accident that resulted in life-changing paralysis, Dr. Hull met an extraordinary physical therapist, Jan Black, and with her focused and specialized approach, combined with his hard work, regained substantial physical movement. He was so impressed with her work he wanted more people to receive the same physical therapy to reach personal milestones. So, he teamed up with Jan and launched Neuroworx in 2004.

Their approach is a combination of expertise, specialized equipment and time, and it’s been so successful that as of last year, they treated over 1,700 individuals from 24 states and four countries. Neuroworx is a non-profit organization providing community-based outpatient physical and occupational therapy to offer specialized rehabilitation care for children and adults affected by paralysis.

Dale says what motivates their team of 14 employees are the remarkable and at times emotional success stories they see every day. Like the athlete who thought his life was over after he was paralyzed. Following his therapy with Neuroworx, he now plays wheelchair basketball for the University of Missouri on a full-ride scholarship.
