Re: Multiple Sclerosis

Good day everyone. Thanks Janet. Maybe I said that wrong, pushing and pulling. When I was teaching I was using the word "extend" and some people were not getting it. I started saying push, like you push a door, meaning you don't touch the door you push through (extend) the door. That seemed to work.I see what you're saying about hip movement and center. The students who are able to stand are not comfortable with hip movements. It's not something they are used to, but we are working on that. Some of the students are in a chair and hip movement is not possible. We are trying to figure out ways to move center with what we can move. Not everyone is the same so it's a lot of learning and adjusting. I had one issue with spasms, something I just learned.

Victims, aren't we all.
