What would it be like to die and be brought back to life? It’s aninconceivable event for most of us, but this was a reality for DaltonMoss.Dalton travelled to Chiang Rai,Thailand for his 21st birthday in2001, when he came head to headwith what would be his tryingfuture.“He was up in the mountains ona big motorcycle,” said his mother,Eve Moss. “He had a phone calland took off his helmet … Whenhe was finished he didn’t put hishelmet back on because it wasn’training anymore. He went around acorner, hit an army truck head-on.He hit the grill, went underneaththe vehicle, and he was prettymuch almost dead.”Dalton’s jaw completely dislo-cated, and he was covered in bloodfrom head to toe. He lied on the burning hot pavement, so hot itmelted his legs through his thin pants, and yet people were mug-ging him. His last chance at lifewas left in the hands of the doctorsin Thailand.“He died, and they brought him back to life,” said Eve. “They justdon’t give up on you; they will notlet a person die!”Dalton suffered a broken ankleand forearm, a multitude of abra-sions, and severe brain injuries thatcost him his memory and landedhim in a coma for three months.When he finally woke up, he waslike a baby – he couldn’t walk, andhe couldn’t talk.Dalton is now 32 but his mentalage ranges daily from about 12 to32 years old.After six months of what seemedlike endless life-threatening sur-geries, Dalton and his mother returned home to BritishColumbia. Seeking treatment became the next hurdle. Evedescribes his treatment at LangleyHospital as “abuse.”“You’d have to threaten them toget to do anything because he wasgetting so infected ... His tracheawas green, and I basically had togo to the news media to get them todo anything. It was a living night-mare, what they did to my son, andnobody cared.”So Eve sought treatment at GFStrong Rehabilitation Centre,where Dalton began learning inde- pendence. He was released after three months, but he still had avery long way to go. Finally, theheath system in B.C. forced themto move to Ontario.“Physio was just hit and misshere and there for a few months,”Eve said, “but that’s no way to helpanybody, you don’t improve.”B.C. only produces 40 physio-therapy graduates annually, butthere are 200 jobs to fill. At this point, the University of BritishColumbia is the only post-second-ary establishment to offer a physio-therapy graduate program.Meanwhile, Ontario sees 265 phys-iotherapy graduates annually. ButEve said it’s not just the lack of  physiotherapists in B.C. that’s the problem; she felt as though theyused her son as an experiment.“Because he has such a multi-tude of things that are all workingagainst each other … they couldn’tfigure it out in B.C., so they were just doing it because they were get-ting paid for it.”The stars finally aligned for Eveand Dalton when they found treat-ment in London.“The therapist watched him justfor the first time and instantly sheknew where all the problemswere,” said Eve. Now Dalton walks with a cane,though he still struggles with bal-ance. Until recently, governmentfunding covered all of his treat-ments. Any further treatments must be paid for out of pocket becauseDalton’s physiotherapist said hehas reached the point where he willno longer reap the benefits of phys-iotherapy.Dalton was invited to a physio-therapy rehabilitation class focusedon traumatic brain injury atWestern University. The studentscould see the before and after effects of what physiotherapy cando for a person never expecting towalk again. Caroline Trajan wasone of the students who attendedthe class.“We all did a subjective inter-view, asked him about the incident.Dalton’s speaking can be hard tounderstand, so it was a lesson to usin communicating with peoplewith brain injuries.”Trajan’s placements haveopened her eyes to issues in thefield.“There’s a lack of funding in alot of areas. Physiotherapy beingsecond tier in health care inCanada doesn’t necessarily get theattention that other areas of healthcare do. I know that a lot of  patients like Dalton get kicked off the case load, maybe prematurely,definitely while they could still benefit from the care.”Dorianne Sauve, the CEO of theOntario PhysiotherapyAssociation, said, “For those whohave extended health benefit plans,there’s lots of private clinic optionsout there.”Eve Moss lives solely on a dis-ability cheque from the govern-ment to support herself and her son, and she does not have enoughmoney to pay for private treatment.“If I go back to the ’80s, I wouldsay that 80 per cent of physiothera- pists worked in the public sector and 20 per cent worked in the pri-vate sector,” said Sauve. “Nowwe’re closer to about 50/50, if nota bit more in the private sector …What we’re looking at is whether or not the system is built andthere’s funding available for phys-iotherapists to provide services inthe public sector.”It’s the patients who have chron-ic illnesses or long-term disabili-ties who are the most vulnerable.They don’t often fit into the eligi- bility requirements. People whofall between the gaps in publicfunding are the ones who aren’table to pay, don’t have extendedhealth benefits, aren’t covered byWSIB or insurance, and don’t fallinto any specific programming thatare offered within the public sys-tem. These people often don’t getthe treatment they need.Ontario specifically faces issuesrelated to geographical access.“I think we’re challenged in hav-ing the same access when we moveaway from our major centres inOntario,” said Sauve. “What we’reseeing over and over again in smalland medium communities is wherea small reduction occurs, or some-one says, ‘We will no longer offer this service at this hospital site,we’re only going to offer it at thisother hospital site which is inanother town’ … People are hav-ing a hard time navigating gettingthat care and oftentimes having tochoose to go without because theycan’t afford private services.”The value of physiotherapy ishuge. It can cut hospital wait times,it can help people regain independ-ence, and it can help health careworkers discover the root problemsof dysfunction.Sauve said, “It reduces a hugeamount of the cost to the healthcare system because if someone’sable to be active and mobile andout there, then they don’t show back up at the hospital.”Dalton Moss is an exceptionalexample of the skill physiothera- pists in Ontario possess. He camein a wheelchair and left on his feet.
