Last Friday, I took the most serious fall of my MS life.
I was walking up the stairs, just like in this video, stepping up with one foot and pulling the opposite foot to that level, you know one stair at a time. My walker was parked around the corner at the top of the stairs as usual. When I reached the top I leaned around to hang my purse on the walker handle. I lost balance. My legs couldn’t respond quickly enough and I fell landing directly on the walker wheel with all my weight on my right side. The result is a damaged rib cage and a regretful exercise vacation!
I’m amazed at how the rib cage influences every movement of the body! Breathing is a pain and laughing is well, not funny!
We’ll see how long it takes to heal to the point of exercising again! I’m amazed at how much I rely on exercise to feel well!
