I started a new routine today. I saw my occupational therapist this week and she suggested that I start stimming my forearms to help strengthen and stretch out my fingers. For the past year, I have been using stim exclusively on my quad muscles and have seen some great results. My leg muscles are not only stronger but I have less tone and can now exercise considerably longer than when I originally began. My stim unit looks like an iPhone and has become my new best friend. I am using the dual channel unit called Choice Stim made by Progenix. The unit was covered by my insurance and the company sends me supplies every month at no cost.
My plan is to use this every day for 30 minutes on each arm to see if I can strengthen my hand grip.
I will post my progress in future blogs.
Here's to fighting back!
