Adults with CP - Need Encouragement
Hi - interested to hear from other adults with CP. I was given the named diagnosis for the first time about 10 years ago, doctors assuming I already knew what the problem was. Previously referred to as 'mild spasticity' . I have led a normal life, brought up children, work full time, drive etc, but walking is becoming daily more challenging. CP plus a desk bound lifestyle conspiring to make this more of a problem. Anyone out there with any positive suggestions? At the moment I manage the condition with 2 weekly visits to a personal trainer - more for stretching than any physical jerks, a once in 3 weeks visit to an Osteopath for a very deep (painful) massage and stretch, and a nightly Baclofen tablet. Need some encouragement as I feel, as you may also, that we are on our own with this as adults. Visits to various specialists over the years have just sent me back to a few brief 'lessons' with NHS Physio, no help to me at all.
