Physical Therapy Takes A Lot of Dedication

Categories: Blog,Uncategorized

Physical and occupational Therapy is HARD WORK!  I don’t care what age you are – it is a challenging task.  I watch my Mother struggle with it.  Her physical therapist comes; puts her gate belt on; gets her walker – and up she goes.  As I walk behind them with the wheelchair (just in case), my Mother can only take a few steps…but she keeps trying. As I listen to the “clank-clank” of the walker, the heavy breathing with every step, her talking to herself “You can do this!” She can’t do much – but she keeps trying…and that’s what is most important.

The mind is a powerful thing.  Believe in yourself.  You can do it.
