In principle, I think Bobath rehabilitation’s great and worth going for, if you can.
I’m a great believer in mirror neurons (even though the original 20th century theories have been tweaked somewhat) and in the body’s ability to rebuild neural pathways through repetitive exercise and (if possible) by visualising and/or watching yourself doing the right thing.
MS will do what MS does, but there’s a lot we can do to slow it down by looking after our poor bodies - and exercise is one of them.
Absolutely fascinated to hear what Campion has to say about giving muscles a boost with slendertone pads. Obviously, being able to exercise them yourself is the best, but that sounds like the next best thing…
lf you place the slendertone pads in the same positions as you would a FES - it will work the foot/ankle. l have struggled for nearly 30yrs now to keep as fit as possible. But having to drag and lift my left side all the time has taken its toll on my right-side - which is not effected by the ms. Now l have osteo-arthritis in hip/knee/ankle - so not a good leg to stand on. l have also tried acupuncture - and after treatment l find l can move my toes and foot on my left leg as normal - but it only lasts for a couple of hours. lts very strange - but at least you know that the movement has not gone completely.
