Mick of NSW (see Member Profiles) is maintaining his mobility with lots of exercise, especially aquatic exercise.
As well as integrating as many as possible physiotherapy group exercises into my aquatics and being advised about additional aquatics, I had my bike that I once used to ride to work modified and put on a roller to facilitate doing pedalling exercises. I also surveyed the local park; it has good level paths ideal for walking exercises.
Now I have lots of exercise methods, aquatics is by far the best. I do at least two methods per day. My more intense exercise program worked! The St. Joseph’s people advise me that if I keep doing my exercise program I’ll plateau i.e., I can shelve the walker! This gives me hope, which I want to pass on to other HSPers.
