Mary Ann's Story

I have had rheumatoid arthritis for 40 years. My joints have been significantly impacted and flare ups are extreme. My last flare up (after being in remission for several years) caused a significant impact on my body and my overall health. Since this time, I have had several issues that have impacted my day to day movements and ability to be physically active. I require support to exercise and get my health back in order so I can maintain my independence.

How will this treatment impact Mary Ann's life?

I have had a recent flare up with my rheumatoid arthritis which set my health back significantly. With the flare up I was unable to exercise and my uterus prolapsed. Physiotherapy and exercise therapy will hopefully help to fix this issue and build muscles to decrease the risks of it happening again. I have also had all my toes amputated on my right foot and require exercises for balance to be able to maintain my functional independence.

My treatments were interrupted due to surgery in April. We went through exercises to help strengthen my legs before my surgery. It went so well that I have been able to keep up on the exercises at home. I appreciate how comfortable Bobbi-Jo made me feel with everything. She showed me simple and effective movements that I could manage on my own once she taught them to me. It made a huge difference for me and my post-surgery healing. I had a number of issues after surgery including pneumonia and haven't been able to get back. I was thrilled with everything that happened and look forward to continue the work.
