I had nothing to lose. There were still spots with Dr. Johnson open under the grant, so I signed up for physical therapy. It was perhaps the best decision of my life.
It was an hour session that enabled me to use my limbs that were going dormant. I shouted out YES!
“You are a wonderful teacher. I am glad I had the opportunity to work with you. You are a blessing to PD patients and others who benefit from your lovingly tough classes. Thank you for all you do. Your commitment to helping others is demonstrated continually by your words and actions.”
The results have been immediate. I feel better (more free in my movements) than I have since my diagnosis and will be discussing dropping one of my medication at my next neurological appointment.
“Thank you Valerie Waldron Johnson and Balance Therapy for keeping this Parkinson’s person more limber and more symptom free with your knowledge of correct exercises, stretches and cardio to help delay Parkinson’s progress! I look forward to all our sessions!”
I cannot be strong enough in my recommendation to seek out Dr. Johnson, or physical therapy. The education in exercise technique is immensely valuable. The gift of a transformed mindset regarding real engagement in that exercise is priceless.
