MS is a progressive condition and each person experiences it differently. Goals will vary greatly from person to person. For one individual it may be acquiring the balance to simply walk around the house, while for another, it may mean the ability to dress and get in and out of their car. Equally for many, it often means working to remain and retain those active roles within the family.
Conductive Education can provide the strategies to ensure maximum use of movements, while also preventing possible secondary problems as a result of the condition. Through the stages of MS on body function, one part can often become weaker due to compensating on another and this may lead to secondary, yet avoidable problems.
Conductors will work with you to:
- develop all movements, ensuring that symmetrical function is achieved
- analyse your unique individual movement
- provide one-on-one advice for reducing fatigue and empowering your independence throughout your daily tasks
- learn to control your movement
It is these factors, which have shown time and again to lead to increased confidence, which in turn leads to an increased level of daily activity and therefore, self-empowerment.
