about polio and the need to exercise, if appropriate. Her information
was helpful and she gave us hand-out sheets of exercise points. One of
the main things I found enlightening was that as our polio muscles
become weaker, more strain is put on joints that are already also
getting weaker, therefore more bracing of limbs may be necessary. That
could explain why a feel like a hardware shop walking around, with two
braces, 2 sticks and sometimes a wrist support, almost all limbs
Waikato have information about "sit and be fit" exercise programme.
