The workout, redux

Heidi Engel at UCSF Osher CenterUCSF Osher Center Physical Trainer Heidi Engel has been advising me on a rehab workout for just over a month now.

Unlike most PTs, who deal with orthopedic and other issues, Heidi focuses on people with stroke and tumor damage to their neuronal pathways. The program she has given me is already producing results.

Every time I have an appointment with Heidi, and she sees progress – in the form of newly strengthened muscles – she then ups the ante and adds new exercises that build on the new strength. After 2 days with the latest program, I’m taking Alleve to ease the aching muscles. But it’s definitely good for me… next up, aerobics on a stationary bike…
