  • SUBLUXSLING
    my girl friend lost the use of her left side after her stroke in april the therapy she received helped her leg, her speech,her eating and swallowing just about everything but her arm and hand...this is what i would like to talk about....i have been by her side since her stroke every therapy she got i repeated it in her hospital room and her recovery was amazing but they couldn't really do any thing for her arm( mainly due to the pain) I asked them about a sling to hold her arm shoulder joint in place(they said the pain and swelling was from pinched nerves in the shoulder)they said that she just had to work through the pain because there was no sling that really worked for the sublux shoulder.....my answer to that bull*&^%...i watched her therapist hold her arm in place and her pain went away....i started searching for a sling ..and sadly they were right every sling i found caused more harm then good..and they wouldn't let me put any on her....well i didn't stop there when she got home she had in home care and i started making different slings while her therapist kept telling me what was wrong with each sling(made 10 kinds)finally the started liking where i was going with number 11 i finished it and her therapist loved it her pain level dropped to where she no longer takes pain meds..the recovery of her arm jumped 80% in two weeks now all of her doctors and therapist require her to wear the sling i made ..if you would like to see what i did i put together a web page describing it https://sites.google.com/site/subluxations
    ling/ .....maybe this will help someone else out

  • I seem to go backwards..but understandable. I started gaining weight June of 2011, 203-217, then I had a heart attack september of last year 217-223.
    PAD stents/kidney stents/ and in June of this year I had PVD a triple by-pass was done.
    223-226 wow.

    I was ina lot of pain/swelling andwalking was limited; due to loss of movement in the ankle.
    Found out last week I had RSD. The nerves and blood flow were looking for the original arteries that was by-passed.
    Now I on a medicine that is clearing that up, lots of PT at home, working on flexibility this week, next week core and flexibility, the following week is strength, core and flexibility. WHEW!!! - 9/24/2012 8:10:06 PM

  • Hello. I began a weight loss challenge through a grocery store. They chose 24 contestants through out the state of Texas to compete in a slim down contest. The winner takes $10,000. The contest does not solely consist of weight loss alone. I also need to gain support from the general public. I hope I can have your support. Please visit www.HEB.com/slimdown and click on the picture that reads "Mayra" to access my blogs. Each comment, like and share earns me a point. Hope to see the support. Thank you. - 9/14/2012 11:28:35 PM

  • Been here almost a week on this 'new' spark program..and as usual with Spark am learning lots of new things re getting and staying healthy. and I've noticed renewed energy within and an inner sense of keep going forward.. and well, it's been fun!
    I feel healthier..self esteem is way up there as I am succeeding on staying with the plan; am enjoying discovering new foods, healthy ways or eating and yes, even getting at least one fruit in each day. - 8/31/2012 12:37:28 PM

  • How can I keep blogs to just friends? - 8/23/2012 11:38:16 PM
  • PRETTYSMARTIDEA
    I have read through the blogging page and nothing I can do will take me to a place to start my blog. There are no links, and the suggested places to go are not places I see on my screen.
    I was inspired to begin a blog here by a SparkPeople blog video about a woman who has taken off a lot of weight and wants to keep it off.
    I have taken off a little over 100 lbs, and come down from a size 20 to a size 2 or 4 (depends on the brand). I kept off the weight for 10 years, then accidentally went up 20 lbs last year and went into a blind panic and did everything I knew how to do to get back into my small size clothes. I've been successful, and I've identified what made me put on the weight, and am now in strict maintenance mode. I'd like to share this experience, but I can not for the life of me figure out how to make it through the maze that is Spark People - 8/16/2012 11:18:45 PM
