Again don't do this without consulting your Doctor or PD nurse. So I cut back to 4 a day and removed my patch at 18.00 hrs each. evening. results to follow.
Sub heading. Sports Massage. Well it had to happen . I thought at my age I might have damaged my hip and possibly needed a replacement. So I went to see Karen. "She's a tri athlete " and an expert in "sports injuries.". Reluctantly she agreed to check me over.
"I know nothing about massage for people with PD" She said. But I will "read up on it " . Thus started the biggest change in my life with PD. Prior to my first appointment in August ,,2016 I couldn't drive for more than half of an hour without having to give over to my wife. Last week I drove to London and back again. She treated me with "Kid Gloves " to start with. No Karen is " up to speed," and I receive full on deep intramuscular massage for 1hour every second Sunday. I am now free from pain and muscular impediments. This needs lots of following up. Will try tomorrow.
Good luck for tomorrow Karen in the Retford half marathon .Also my best wishes to all friends taking part especially to all my ",catchers" on my Saturday park runs. ,,( have you ever tried stopping after,5,,k ) you need friends. And when I fall over I. need mates like Roger ,Dave and Matt to pick me up. Good luck for tomorrow guys I/,we will be at 10 mls out .To cheer you on. Mike
