After Dr. Dale Hull was paralyzed in 1999 he underwent therapy for three and a half years, working with his therapist, Jan Black. Hull and Black later joined forces to create Neuroworx, a nonprofit outpatient physical therapy clinic that provides the same outstanding rehabilitation Dr. Hull himself had experienced — an experience that, over time, brought him to his feet. Neuroworx has earned an unequaled national reputation and respect for its evidencebased, creative and innovative neurorehabilitation.
