“I have MS. My physiotherapist has kept me motivated by designing diverse and interesting exercises. Stomach and back muscles are the be-all and end-all; they play a huge role in walking and maintaining balance.
I have very good instructions for training at home from my physiotherapist, but often spasticity in my legs stops me from doing the exercises on the floor level. The hard floor also feels uncomfortable against the back and hip bones. I suffer from aches every day.
MS patients typically suffer from hypersensitivity to sounds, lack of concentration, muscle weakness, and problems in mobility and sense of touch.
The latest addition to my exercise regime is SpineGym training. It was love at first sight. I ordered one for home use straightaway because it was so light and silent and allowed me to do the exercises standing up. Getting dressed can be difficult for an MS patient, so it’s great that you don’t have to change into sports clothes to use the SpineGym exerciser. SpineGym training doesn’t put your joints under strain either.
After only a week, I started to notice that the exercises were getting easier to do and I felt good.
I was surprised how just a few minutes of exercise at a time made a difference to my muscles and I became more aware of my posture. I do my exercises in the evening and it seems to me that I even sleep better. My SpineGym exerciser came with easy-to-follow basic instructions. In the future, I also want to test the SpineGym seated model, where you can do the exercises sitting down.
I can warmly recommend the SpineGym device and training.”
