In 2006 I had a massive stroke while out running. I had been an age-competitive long distance runner, resulting in some depression. After three months in hospital and many different therapies, I discovered the Movement Centre of Manitoba.
I joined the program in the Fall of 2008 and quickly started to see improvement in my left hand. My small finger was the first to move, now my whole hand is moving on command.
My walking has also improved as has my confidence, my left shoulder flexibility improvement has been amazing. Working in a group environment has been beneficial as we feed off each other’s improvement, seeing others improve is very rewarding.
The Movement Centre is very well managed, the staff are amazing and committed to their work.
