Default Re: Exercise

I was very happy with warm water therapy. It took a while to figure something out that didn't elicit more spasticity (basically I stood in the water and sort of swirled my arms around and let my legs relax) but I found it really helpful. It was in a group setting with other people at a rehab centre with a variety of CNS and brain injuries. While I did wallow in my own misery due to feeling feeble for part of it, the mild exercise helped with sleep and overall mood due to post-exercise endorphins.
