Physiotherapy is perhaps the key part of my whole brain injury rehabilitation because my physiotherapy gains have increased my ability to maintain my self-confidence and therefore my mental state. More specifically heads up! have enabled me to increase my physical abilities. This has been so vital and I am now living independently, I can definitely use the actions and abilities that the team have given me.
I learn them in the sessions and then go and use them in everyday life. I am very, very grateful for what the physiotherapists have given me. My independence has forever been on the increase since coming out of hospital, but since 2010 I have lived independently. In 2010 I lived with a personal assistant or “a carer” (I hate that word) because I needed a PA to assist me with everyday life, whether that be around the home, in the taxi to the physiotherapy session, or in the physiotherapist sessions themselves.
The independence I have gained and been given from the physiotherapist sessions has enabled me to live as I do currently without my PAs. I do have a PA but only for a minimal times in the day. I no longer, thank goodness, need help all day. Please visit my blog here.
