New Course for Mobility Problems

Here`s some info about a course for MS folks around the Fredericton area that might help improve mobility:

Hello all, here is the course outline for a program that UNB (at the Currie Center) has developed in conjunction with the Stan Cassidy Center to assist in retraining the brain and hopefully recover some lost mobility functions.  If you are interested you can register by calling UNB URec at the numbers shown on the course description.  If you know of others that could benefit from such a program (such as stroke, MS, other neurological conditions) please forward this information to them.  Best regards and wishing you good health, Dianne Harriman.
A.X.O.N. – Advanced Exercise for Our Nerves
Spring 2012 Pilot Program

The AXON pilot program is a twice per week progressive program designed for those who are experiencing physical complications due to a neurological condition. Each day will include exercises that will help to build and/or maintain upper and lower body strength as well as balance. All exercises are led by Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology certified staff. Pre and post-testing is completed and is used as an objective measurement for improvement.
The AXON pilot program is adapted to meet the needs of each participant in a non-intimidating and encouraging environment. In order to be accepted into AXON, participants must be able to walk (with or without a walking aid), have the ability to verbally communicate, and have appropriate endurance to exercise at a light to moderate level for one hour. Participants will be asked to have their doctor fill out an AXON-specific PARmed-X prior to beginning the program.
