Joye nicely explains her experience and progress in her letter. Her tremor is most often totally absent. She experiences no violent full body spasms. She is no longer hypersensitive to noise or other stimuli.
"This last ailment diagnosed by Stanford University & San Francisco Medical Center, included tremors, cervical dystonia, and troublesome, stiffman disease which took away my independence. Unable to write, type, button my clothes, pluck my eyebrows and put on makeup to say the least, I had to quit my job.
My neurologist let me try physical therapy. That's when you started with with a new treatment plan, Fascial Counterstrain. I began to regain my independence and get my life back. Little by little my abilities, my balance and endurance returned. It took time, but well worth it. My neurologist was astounded at my improvement and said he had never witnessed anything like it. My muscles relaxed and the spasms are far and few between. The tremors are almost non-existent. I know I had a ways to go but with you I am confident it will only get better.
Thank you for your caring heart and all your hard work. Reminds me of listening to a country western song backwards. I get my life back, my job back, my confidence, and my independence.
I am always amazed at what my patients forget to tell me. At one of our recent visits Joye was recounting all the things that she has been able to add back into her life: the ability to feed and dress herself, normal activity around the house, keeping up with her grandchildren, walking, exercising and more. Then she remarked, “Oh, I forgot to tell you I went back to work full time a couple of weeks ago!”
