On April 30th I about fell getting out of bed. My legs felt weak. By Sunday afternoon I had a hard time walking and my hands were getting weak. On Monday I was diagnosed with Guillians Barre Syndrome. I spent a week in the hospital while receiving treatment.
Due to GBS I had to use a walker and couldn’t lift a cup of coffee. I started to feel a little better after a week and didn’t think that I would need therapy, but my Dr. highly recommended that I did.
So I went to Big Stone Therapy at St. William’s and it turned out to be the best decision I could have made. I saw both a Physical and Occupational Therapist once a week for six weeks. They helped me with rebuilding my muscles, balance and coordination. With their help I am getting back to normal. I am able to go for long walks, bike rides and can use my tools.
A ‘BIG” thanks to Melissa and Neil!
