This week’s #CPChatNow Twitter chat was a meandering chat that reflected the busy nature of our member’s lives. There was even a little bit of Español thrown in! I am #CPChatNow Interim Co-Host, Devin Axtman, and I will be taking you along on this week’s recap. All aboard!
This week’s chat took on numerous topics, but a well discussed topic was member’s feelings about the impact of therapy in their life. Rachel shared a funny antidote that doing dishes was therapy for her after Blemi shared she was exhausted from doing dishes:
#CPChatNow regular, Jessica, also shared why she felt the common belief that Physical Therapy is simply an extension of personal training is misplaced. She shared this is more the case for adults, while for kids PT is about re-establishing Nuero pathways.
Also, one of #CPChatNow’s founders, John Quinn, stopped by and shared the latest always interesting developments in his life. Seriously, check out his book, Someone Like Me, it is an outstanding description of his life with CP.
In some happy news, our #CPChatNow Co-Host now known as Jorge Oteiza, is back from Spain and enjoying some family time, overalls, and a new tattoo.
Also, Jorge shared some positives and experiences from his trip to Spain:
Next, this brings us to the announcement of our focus chat on aging with CP. Please join us tomorrow, Wednesday, May 31st at 8 EST.
Finally, I would like to go back to the beginning of our chat for Rachel’s discussion about washing dishes being therapy to our Extend-The-Conversation-Question: What non-traditional forms of therapy have you used?
Please join us tomorrow at 8 EST for our focus chat on CP and aging.
