When I started with Heidi, I had limited mobility. I could not get down on the floor unassisted, nor get up from the floor with out something to pull on. I also could not bend over and pick up objects on the floor, or to clean around baseboards in my home.
For all the physical therapy that I have had since my Scoliosis was diagnosed, I still suffered from tightening of my hip flexors and poor spinal support and was therefore unable to stand or to walk erect. While I still do not walk erect, and the doctor has concluded that is a result from my surgery, I can now sit and stand erect.
I also can bend over, and pick up objects from the floor: I can get up and down from the floor using just my arms and legs. I am no longer fearful of falling and being unable to get up. My arm strength continues to amaze me. In addition the two painful spots on my body, in my groin and on my hip are barely noticeable any more. I have tackled and completed a couple of projects recently that I would not have attempted before, thanks to my new found confidence and strength.
In fact, I am giving serious thought to doing my own fall planting this year, and not hiring someone else to do it for me. I am truly grateful and most appreciative to Heidi, for the increased mobility and flexibility their training has provided to my body.
