Today we highlight a client who has battled through adversity on multiple occasions. She demonstrates the pigheaded discipline and determination it takes to maintain her strength and independence.
She understands that you “either invest in your health now or pay the price later”.
“A healthy man has thousands of wishes, a sick man has only one”. –Agnes Karll Schwest Krankenpfleger
Dealing with multiple sclerosis has created multiple challenges for Karen. A loss of strength, endurance and balance makes even some of the simplest daily tasks difficult.
If dealing with MS was not tough enough she developed a fear of falling after several stumbles. She thought it was just a part of life but tripping over a rug at a local restaurant was the last straw. Karen knew she had to get serious if she was going to keep working and maintain her independence.
Karen was lucky enough to avoid major injuries after her fall but knew she needed to be aggressive and proactive to maintain her independence and avoid future falls.
Karen’s confidence was at an all time low after her fall. She had even greater difficulty walking and her left leg felt extremely weak. Climbing stairs, walking on un-level ground, and even enjoying a walk through the grass was proving both challenging and stressful. We worked with Karen to develop a specialized program tailored to her needs, helping her increase her confidence and maintain her independence.
While her MS is still present and she understands the ramifications of her disease she is determined to work hard to maintain her strength and independence.
If you are like Karen or know of someone who is then let us help you improve your balance, prevent falls and remain active and independent for a lot longer.
