Re: Question

Have you taken her to a BPI SPECIALIST? . Has she had a nerve condution test done? If not then that is where I would start. A full test. Not just a partial that tests only one nerve. If she has muscle wasting because of lack of use of those muscles it MIGHT be possible to stop the muscle wasting.

Water excercises. Even if you do them in a bathtub. Pool is awesome for pain relief.

Re: I wish I could respond to Jmar

Are you coming to camp this year? I would like to meet you and your wife. Do you live close to where camp is? I do care about people. But am overlooked as weird or odd. Or quiet. I am really none of those things.

Re: Hello Everyone, LBPI in Kansas City

Dr McKinnon is pretty good at getting people in quickly. If I had an issue with my arm I was usually scheduled within two weeks. She is a very good dr. Some say she has a bad bedside manner but I dont see that at all.hope you have a very successful surgery wherever you go.

Your grammar is a bit hard to follow but that is no reason to ignore you or treat you like you dont matter. You are a person who does his best to encourage and help other people.

I have done so many water exercises over the past 4 years that I have almost taught myself to swim. I have a swimming instructor that is...
