As an experience expert I am happy to help you with your shoulder and arm (with help from one of our physiotherapists)
Here we go!
Herma said while finished taping my shoulder. I wanted to say thank you, but nothing came out. I had lost my speech though my strokes. Instead I just nodded.
Herma, my favorite physical therapist, had taped my shoulder to prevent shouldersubclusation in other words...she fixed it from falling out.
Now , here I am 5 years post stroke, and my shoulder is far away from falling out and I consider to be reasonable strong.
Not like it used to be, but pretty strong.
Why am I telling you this?
I know how many stroke survivors a struggling with their shoulder and arm.
In order to use your arm and hand, you get to have your shoulder in place and use it correctly.
It all starts with the shoulder!
I have tried “almost” everything to strengthen my shoulder. Most thinks didn’t work (-: but a few of them actually worked!
Actually, pre-crawling, and Nordic walking helped a lot of getting my arm swing back. Arm-swing is very important for recovery of your affected shoulder and arm*.
Now I feel pretty much secure in starting a SHOULDER PROGRAM at Brain and Spine Rehab!
I will do this with a physical therapist that works with us (since I am not a therapist, but experience expert).
You can book yourself in at this link. You only pay for Arjan and physical therapist hours (97.50 an hour), which means you get me for free (-:
You can come once a week or once a month, it depends on you time and financial situation (you get approximately half of the money reimbursed, if you have an aanvullende verzekering).
Why am I doing this?
To tell you the truth, I am doing this NOT ONLY because I want people to get better and start using their shoulder. I am writing my new book about this subject as well. It is in my uttermost intrest to get you shoulder working again, my next book depends on it!
(-: It is WIN-WIN
