I asked my neurologist whether anything could be done to help with losing my balance/ almost falling. To my surprise he referred me to a physical therapist.
The referral meant that insurance would cover it. So, I went. And I'm now walking backwards, rocking between heels and toes while holding something stable, side stepping crossing one foot in front of the other while holding something stable.
But the wierdest one was for my hands. I'm supposed to touch both thumbs together, then both index fingers, then both middle fingers, then both ring fingers, then both little fingers, then back again in reverse for many repititions of the exercise. Wierd! Just gently touching my fingers together creates strange sensations inside the back of my head and in various parts of my chest and spine. This is a neurology physical therapist. I hope the exercise is doing good things, but I'm not sure what they would be.
Does anyone have any idea what is or could be going on here? Also, have any of you had useful or interesting physical therapy experiences?
