Allina Health's Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute helps Rochester man adjust to life as a quadriplegic

[KAAL-TV, January 13, 2023] A Rochester man is preparing to return home nearly six months after a devastating diving accident. In August, Nathan Keller dove off of a dock and broke his neck. It left the 42-year-old a quadriplegic, paralyzed from the chest down.

After the accident, Keller was airlifted to a hospital in Fargo where he underwent surgery on his spine. Following that hospital stay, he’s been undergoing extensive physical therapy at Allina Health’s Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute in Golden Valley. Staff at Courage Kenney believe Keller’s attitude is playing a key part in his long-term recovery. He’s positive and still has a sense of humor.

KAAL-TV also shared an interview with Keller describing his accident and the days since then. He can watch that here.
