Haha! Brilliant!! Wow! what a transformation! Those videos really prove that hard work pays off! Glad I've made you smile
Love the website, really interesting concepts there, I'd never have thought of using censors to remind of bad posture, that should be marketed! when I was that age I just had my parents, teachers and physio constantly nagging me to 'put my heels down' or stand straighter!
I didn't begin to realise the benefits of physio until my early teens when I had major surgery and the rehab was really hard work, but I could physically see and feel the benefits.
I still have off days (or weeks!) with physio, and then suffer for it!
Hi @CPfighter1990Good to meet you and welcome to our community. I have also noticed a decline in my mobility since I have gotten older. Adults with CP can sometimes experience some physiological burnout due to the amount of energy we use and the way we move. I agree with @niceboots that some of this can be slowed by physiotherapy, hydrotherapy and the right orthotics and equipment. I also feel it's important to 'listen' to your body and try to manage your energy levels. For example, I try to complete my most demanding tasks in the morning, when I feel fresher. I haven't had any physiotherapy in relation to my CP for many years. I tend to exercise myself, particularly swimming. I would contact your G.P. to have a discussion about physiotherapy. There is also this free physio app might be of interest to some. It illustrates 600 exercises, many of which appear to be appropriate for some people with CP: https://www.physiotherapyexercises.com/ Not as good as consulting a physiotherapist but maybe a starting point.
