My Therapy Story By Bruce Springer

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!
