Physiotherapy: The apparatuses which a physiotherapeutic uses often have a negative result on my muscles. The spasm and lassitude increase when the effort rises. It fails my coordination for the movements on the (physiotherapeutic) machines to perform. 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.

Ergo therapy: The tips of the ergo therapeutic to make my daily exercises as easy and ergonomically as possible are fine. Because there are always movements which I made automatically my hole life, but through the spasm I can't make them at all, it's fine to make other easier movements which I learned from my ergo therapeutic. As well as the adjustments in and around my house as the support for financial help are a positive experiences for me.

Speech therapy: My speak-exercises to be able to communicate by making the right breathing exercises during a talk, are very important, when the sound of my voice increases. This happens because I have no energy left because of the universal lassitude. Social work: The easy conversations with my social worker involved positively to except and there for to learn for the resorts ( sticks, wheelchair and the orthopedic shoes). Also the support and interest too your partner for, are a surplus value for someone with a muscular disease.
