#CPChatNow Recap- 8/17

This past week in #CPChatNow was hopping as always. Members discussed adaptive waterskiing, exciting research opportunities for CP, and seeing their doctor for medical issues. This is #CPChatNow co-host, Devin Axtman, taking you along for the ride on this week’s recap. All aboard!

First, I want to share a really cool picture from Blemi recently doing some adaptive waterskiing.

Next, Chris shared information about the Cerebral Palsy Research Network and research they are doing about falls and other topics common to CP.

chris tweets about a research study the cp research network is doing about falls and other things related to adults and recommends people check it out
zach tweets that the research might not benefit us, but it will create greater understanding of cp and adulthood making aging easier for the next generation

Chris also talks about some medical issues she has been having with her esophagus and discusses the importance of getting things checked out as soon as possible.

chris tweets about tests she has done to find issues with her swallowing. zach tweets that is good information to have and chris tweets as soon as anything feels weird it should be checked out.
zach tweets that cp has kept him having a relationship with his doctor since he is on baclofen and needs regular blood tests

This brings us to our Extend-The-Conversation Question: What adaptive activities have you tried?
