Lew - I knew I would catch you on that one

I have taken Feldenkrais classes off and on for a little over a year. Basically, the class teaches you how to move. With MS, we have many areas of our body that just do not move correctly -- much of this is caused by compensating movements. The foot is dropping so in order to get it through the gait step without tripping, you hike the hip. When you hike the hip, the knee is taken out of the gait action--it does not bend. In time this becomes your "new" walking memory.
Feldenkrais is used by dancers and pro athletes (yes, Lew, football players). It is becoming part of physical therapy rehab for people with strokes. Personally, I have been in class with a fireman who could not turn without his back hurting, a lady who had "frozen shoulder", a dancer who could no longer jumb and bend her knee, a few MS people, a lady in her 80's who could not get up off the floor----the Feldenkrais helped all of them In fact, the firehouse now uses the training as part of their physcial routine exercise.
It has helped me to learn new ways to move my body with the physical deficits that I have.
