Alison_T : Physio Today
Diary entry posted Wed 6:51am 3 August 2005

Went to physio in my porche (electric wheelchair) I feel very embarassed, hope no one sees me, get opposite sugery and there is no ramp! so i have to go back up the street all the way to the top to find a ramp to get to the other side, making me 5 mins late. I feel for other wheelchair users and wonder if they to felt embarrassed when they went into wheelchair for first time, must be 100 times worse when you know your never walk again, so then i feel lucky as mine is temporary (I hope)
The physiotherapist went through the exercise programe, my left leg muscles are wasted, i feel really unfit. She gives me a giant elastic band (dont know proper name) with this i need to stand on one end, hook my bad leg in around the ankle and move foot outwards. Sounds easy! will let you know.
Another exercise i can do; lay on bed on stomach hook band round poster at the end of the bed put my ankle in and bring my ankle towards my thigh.
Will let you know how i get on.
