I have experienced it thru other areas

when, once upon a very long time ago [so it seems] when I was active in sports…I liked it. It makes sense.

Most PT I experience may use some aspects, but most are geared towards pilates and very lo-impact kinds of stuff.
Thing is, once you hurt as we tend to do, lose muscle tone and strength as we do, getting started is a very well…hurtful thing, that takes a lot out of us to JUST BEGIN to do it.

I’ve done PT on animals, using the Feldenkrais and Alexander techniques and since animals can’t complain…beauty is, is it does. Creatures like it all. The thing to be careful about with those who have sensory neuropathies is that, well, some of those damaged or healing nerves are HYPER….you cannot de-sensitize them at this point, only get them accustomed gently to new sensations. To ‘overachieve’ would/could possibly lead to hypertensions or neuralgias…tho I’ve not found any documentations medicall to this, some posters all over complain of this. Being truly sensitive to what the person/patient needs, says ‘IS GOOD’ or NOT is key in how you direct your therapies. Now, keep in mind, I’m not a doc…I’m only a patient, but I have seen the good and not so that some PT’ers do. That you are aware and are trying to be sensitive is well, ACES in my book!
Feldenkrais? If my insurance could cover it? I’d be there in a flash!
