The devices that a physiotherapist has available, often have a negative result on my muscles if I overload the muscles. Performing the movements untaxed is experienced positively.
The spasticity and fatigue that result from stress increase as the effort increases. I lack the coordination to properly carry out the movements on the devices where more than 1 operation must be performed, so that I quickly get tired.
Through all that I am tired very quickly. Doing exercises in the water (aqua jogging) looks easy, but when I step out of the warm swimming pool water, my muscles block.
There for heat (water) is needed to unblock my muscles.
When the stifness rise through the inconvenience of the muscular disease, I can always back to my physiotherapeutic which induce my muscles till a better comfort.
Doing exercises in the water (aqua jogging) looks easy, but when I step out of the warm pool water, my muscles stiffen up.
Then I need more heat (water) to get the stiffness out of my muscles. I am unable to swim.
The signals sent from my brain to make my legs move, are not received properly by the muscles.
The stretching exercises and massage losen up the muscles.
I have to do the stretching exercises daily and I can do them almost completely on my own.
I also have to work out on a hometrainer, twice a day - 10 minutes per session, putting as little strain as possible on my muscles and joints.
This is needed to stimulate the bloodcirculation in my legs and preventing fluid getting in my legs.
The saddle has to be adjusted at the right position so that I can easily get on the hometrainer without having to lift up my legs too high.
