Well it’s been an incredible 6 months. Tom Ware from Neurophysics has been flying down from the Gold Coast every 4 weeks. We have been working hard and Tom is an amazing support to me. He sets the training schedule for me for the next 4 weeks and we speak on the phone regularly.
I have been able to make many new connections within my body. So far I have regained many muscles and tendons, but I will need to work on them to increase my strength. I now have activation of my triceps, hand, some fingers, back, chest, stomach, lats, glutes, hip flexors, quads, hamstrings, abductors, achilles and I can breathe normally. I also have some sensation returning, but this will take time to develop.
I was very grateful to receive a training scholarship at The Next Step spinal cord injury recovery centre in Epping. I have been training with them a couple of days a week and have seen the my body getting stronger. My balance and standing has improved immensely and the connections and reflexes in my body have also improved a lot.
