Does a 77 Year-Old Elite Athlete Hold the Secret to Rehabilitating Spinal Cord Injuries?
Date:8/7/2014

Little Rock, AR (PRWEB) August 07, 2014

Bespoke Video Production today announced the mini-documentary ‘True Athlete’ will make its digital premier on Outsideonline.com beginning Thursday, August 7, 2014. ‘True Athlete’ shares a powerful story about life, loss and a transformation rooted in physical fitness. After a tragic accident left him a quadriplegic, doctors said Robert Robinson would likely never do anything more than blink his eyes again. After hearing of Robert’s prognosis, then 72 year-old Henry Hawk, one of Arkansas’s most decorated track and field runners, had an idea. His thoughts turned to the power of physical fitness in his own life, and how it had been a guiding and life-changing force. He thought of the long solitary hours training, of the methodical approach to life-long fitness that had been the foundation of his accomplishments, on and off the track. Without hesitation, Henry decided to lace up his “inner -running shoes” and help Robert beat the odds. One day at a time, through long hours of gritty determination, Henry and Robert traveled a remarkable journey together. The journey was born of Henry’s belief that exercise has the power to change, heal, and transform us no matter our present condition. Directed by Tyler West, you can watch ‘True Athlete' here.

Henry Hawk has won 36 national titles in Masters Track and Field Championships. At age 61, he set a world record in the indoor mile, and in 2003 he was ranked #1 in the world in the 1500 and 800-meter races (60-64 age division). Henry is a member of the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame and the Arkansas Track and Field Hall of Fame.

Working with adults contending with quadriplegic injuries, Hawk challenges them with new protocols, and with time has them standing on their own, lifting weights, performing squats and toe-raises, and working out with a walker. In a recent independent evaluation performed by a highly respected PhD physical therapist, he recommended that Hawk’s work be documented for review by medical practitioners, with the possibility of incorporating Henry's revolutionary approaches into our country's physical therapy protocols.
