    That's just it, to me. I've been to physicians and therapists with great backgrounds (on paper), years of experience, and professional recommendations - and they still managed to screw up royally....

    I've learned, to my intense regret and dismay, never to allow anyone to manipulate my spine in any manner whatsoever, not even with supposedly soft tissue techniques. I have been permanently damaged...

    Very nice. We have several configurations like that where I live and it takes most of the fear out of getting to the sidewalk.

    Wow, Todd...withdrawal symptoms lasting months or years! I remember when Valium was first marketed, what a miracle drug it was claimed to be - and it spawned so many others. I'm really, really glad...

    Todd, I haven't commented because I don't know anything about benzo withdrawal or where to go for help, but this new approach sounds so reasonable and humane that I just wanted to chime in and say...

    Those clothes are too fussy and attention-grabbing for my taste. Plus, those sewn-in straps for lifting the legs won't be of much help for people without arm and upper body strength. I have to use...

    The fact that this study was reported in the respected British medical journal, The Lancet, lends credence to it. In today's world of short news cycles, I'm actually not surprised that it didn't make...

    There are snippets of videos on The Lancet's YouTube channel - one is a 19-second clip of a hand opening and closing, without discussion or "before" footage; the second clip is an interview with one...

    Right, I hear you. Can you call your orthotist and spell out the specific needs (as listed in your post above) for an AFO you can use in the pool? The reason I stress this, is that I'm always amazed...

    dave, I've tried that exact brace and it does NOTHING. I can't recommend another one, because I've never found an "over-the-counter" brace that works. As you know, it's not safe to wear an actual AFO...

    Great blog post. I am so glad to see the choices that are becoming available. Those magnetic closures in place of buttons would be a big help, and a major visual improvement over velcro. I've pretty...

    Was this reply possibly intended for another thread? Chelley's issue is pain from an extruded disc, rather than increased spasticity (unless she raised that issue in a separate thread).
