I have had two days with PT the first day was he had to write down his info my meds ext......

To day he had me from a sitting position stand up I was able was able to push up from the arms of the chair. He timed me for 30 seconds the first day I did 6 the second day and I did 7 yeah.

Then he had me walk and wants me to bend my left knee when I walk that is my drop foot. Then I had to stand with out holding onto my kitchen counter for 30 seconds ( my feet had to be close to getting. The next thing to do was I had to put one foot in front of the other toe to heal and stand for 30 seconds or as long I can the switch feet it wasn’t that bad he stood be hind me when I do it by myself I will have my rollator

I just wanted to give you some information so if you have never had PT it’s not a bad thing and I have had PT before and it wasn’t like this it was more sitting down and just move your legs which is good but really I want to be a little challenged

I HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT FOURTH OF JULY My husband has been called out to work but my son is home so this the third of July and there are firerworks to watch so we are going to get a pizza 🍕 and watch firer works oh by the way the heat indexed is around 100*f I hope his air conditioner is working

Just make sure something or someone is behind you when you do try them just in case you should fall if I don’t have any one I am going to have my rollator locked

I have PT on Thursday. I went to this therapist last year 2 or 3 times a month for 6 months and she helped me a lot. She specializes in neuromuscular diseases and understands the MS pathology. I've been to others but she's the best for me. Unfortunately I'm in the worst relapse ever and I'm barely walking. But I'm trying to keep as much mobility as I can so I'm going to go, though I might postpone more visits until this relapse passes if it's just too hard right now. We'll see. I think it's good you want to be challenged. Sometimes we don't think we can do something until we are challenged and find out we can. Happy 4th!

Thank you. I don’t know where you are but in New England is so bad when my son brought me out side so we could go and watch the firer works I couldn’t believe how nasty hot and humid it was out side thank goodness for air conditioning. Have a Happy Fourth of July !!

I’m so happy for you. My insurance won’t pay for pt saying I have MS and I’ll never improve.

On the bright side I found a woman who teaches a tai-chi class here in Chicago IL. She has MS. One of the MS society recommended her class. She was once wheelchair bound now she walks without a cane.

I have only been to 2 classes but see improvement

It doesn’t hurt that I’m doing the MS gym on Facebook as well

Happy Movement and Improvements
