The exercise I am introducing today works multiple parts of the body at the same time. It addresses my affected side & works my entire arm - shoulder, elbow, wrist & hand. It also addresses my ability to walk by increasing my gait and my ability to turn.
1. Work on a floor that is even, straight and “bump” free. (Be able to move about 50-60 feet each way.)
2. Lift hands onto handles of walker.
3. Again, walk 50-60 feet each way - keeping feet straight. Be sure to keep hand firmly on the walker handle.
4. Turn carefully. Alternate turning left and right during the exercise.
5. Walk each direction at least 5 times.
6. Let hands come off handles of walker slowly to your side.
