Camino de Santiago (Day 34) ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป Santiago de Compostela My last day. I came to Spain to walk 500 miles, but I woke up 9 short. We thought about taking a taxi backwards to experience walking into the famous city of Santiago De Compostela after taking a taxi the night before, but we did something else instead. We walked backwards out of the city as other pilgrims were walking in. Every person we passed was coming into the city after days and weeks of blisters, bunk beds, and dreams of reaching the end โ€” so we cheered them on and clapped for them, congratulating them and welcoming them to the city. We did this until I reached my own goal. On day 34, after 7 months in a wheelchair, I walked my 500th mile of the Camino de Santiago, and completed one of my greatest dreams. โค๏ธ

Camino de Santiago (Day 33) ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป Palas de Rei โ€”โ€”-> Santiago De Compostela We had some major ground to cover, so when we woke up to morning rains, we did what no pilgrim should ever admit to... we took a bus. And it was liberating. We started our walking day in the town of Melide with the goal of walking until we dropped. My last full day could easily be titled, โ€œThe Joe Chronicles.โ€ Joe is definitely one of the funniest people Iโ€™ve ever met and the fact he carried my bag was just an added bonus. My cousin and I would go back-and-forth reciting & laughing at our favorite Joe quotes. I met a group of Spanish bikers at the top of the hill when we stopped for espresso. I was trying to communicate what happened and why I was wearing a leg brace, but because of the language barrier, I showed them a video instead. The women and even one of the menโ€™s eyes filled with tears. Love & empathy is a universal language โค๏ธ As the sun started setting and the wine started flowing at our last rest stop, an awesome decision was made. As a group we hopped in a taxi & our little Camino family spent our final night on the trail together at an Air BNB in Santiago de Compostela talking, crying, and pouring out our hearts late into the night.

Camino de Santiago (Day 32) ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป Portomarรญn โ€”โ€”-> Palas de Rei The weather was a little rainy, so when we stumbled upon a small festival, it wasnโ€™t long before we were under the tent, laying in the grass, enjoying the live music. I even took my shoes off and my sweet massage & physical therapist Englishman rubbed my feet. It was bliss. We reunited with the 3 funny guys from England later that night for an amazing meal at the Pulperia A Nosa Terra. For one hour I felt like a normal human eating a normal meal instead of the dirty hippie backpacker I had been for over 30 days!

Camino de Santiago (Day 31) ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป Lugo โ€”โ€”-> Portomarรญn I said my good-byes one last time to my Spaniard and headed towards Portomarรญn. Our group all spent sometime walking alone, but after the paths split different ways and we almost lost each other for an entire day in the middle of a forest, we stuck close to one another once reunited. We passed several crosses and I finally learned what they meant. Theyโ€™re where pilgrims have walked their last step on earth and their first steps into heaven. To walk yourself to death seemed confusing to me, until it was explained the Camino is a path for self reflection... A place to find yourself, or even find God. Itโ€™s one of those bucket list items so many have, so when they are diagnosed with something terminal, when they find out their time in this world is about to be cut short, they say good bye, pack their bags, and spend their final days enjoying the fresh air, the Spanish countryside beauty, & warm Camino smiles for one last long walk. โค๏ธ๐ŸŒŽ

Camino de Santiago (Day 30) ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป Triacastela โ€”โ€”-> Samos โ€”โ€”> Lugo This day!!! ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ Our first major stop was the enchanting town of Samos. If I wasnโ€™t so far behind on schedule, I would have stayed there! There is a big, beautiful monastery where you can actually sleep over night, and Itโ€™s the type of town you could tuck yourself away for the weekend and fall in love. We were just 3 miles away from our final stop of the day in Sarria when a quaint, stoned cottage popped up out of no where named โ€œA Fonte das Bodas.โ€ It was in the middle of a huge garden with a sign up inviting pilgrims in for donation based tapas & wine. I HAD TO GO IN. The sweet couple who owned the little bed & breakfast brought us out plate after plate of amazing, authentic, homemade Spanish food & wine. We werenโ€™t going anywhere! After deciding to stay, she cooked us dinner using veggies from the garden & she even made us crowns to wear on our heads with her flowers! This was by far my favorite accommodation of the entire walk across the Camino and I would love to see them again. One of those special moments in time Iโ€™ll remember so dearly in my heart the rest of my life. โค๏ธ

Camino de Santiago (Day 29) ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป La Laguna de Castilla โ€”โ€”-> Triacastela After a late start (again), the 6 of us started back up the mountain & finally made it to the final part of the trail โ€” Galicia! The views at the top in the little town of Oโ€™Cebreiro were beautiful, which is one of the only stops on the Camino you need to book accommodation ahead of time or you will not have anywhere to stay โ€” but we did stop for lunch and I had the best fresh baked bread Iโ€™ve ever had. Towards the end of the day it started to rain, but this time we powered through it and found a beautiful rainbow. Life is like that... if you can just suck it up & weather the storm, your life will light up in color. โค๏ธ

Camino de Santiago (Day 28) ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป Vega De Valcarce ---> La Laguna de Castilla I had been anticipating this day since the start of the Camino, because I had been warned the climb up the mountain to O'Cebreiro was the second hardest hike up -- and I skipped the first. I could go for it and risk getting hurt or failing, or I could go for it, but when an old friend showed up, the decision to hike it was made. When my Spaniard heard I was going to attempt the mountain, he forfeited the rest of his hike to Santiago, took a bus backwards, and walked out onto the path that morning to hold my hand, help me achieve my goal, and keep me safe hiking over the mountain. He even carried both of our backpacks to make it easier for me. But just when I thought I was going to make it, we got rained in... and Iโ€™m so glad we did! It was one of my favorite days of the entire Camino. We ended up finding shelter under a shed outside the Bar Albergue La Escuela & drank until the cows came home... literally. The albergue had one room left of bunk beds, so the 6 of us took it and had a big slumber party. I was with (almost) all of my favorite people I had met, all at one time, all in one place, with nothing to do or anywhere to go, but just sit there, watch the rain, & laugh. It was magic.

Camino de Santiago (Day 27) ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป Cacabelos ---> Vega de Valcarce Walking into the first major coffee and tapa stop of the day, Villafranca del Bierzo, felt like we had just walked straight into an episode of Game of Thrones... minus all the nudity and weapons. The town made of stone stretched up and down hills of lush green. Luckily we had a little extra time to explore and we met up with the 3 funny, happy go lucky, Englishmen we had met the night before. After you walk out of Villafranca, you can take the high, steep inclined road through beauty and nature, or the low, flat road next to a highway. I chose the low, easy road, but it was still a gorgeous walk. The 2 paths join back together in Trabadelo. I wish we would have stayed there or possibly at the Casa Del Pescado a little further down the path next to a pond (where the host cook a communal, organic, farm to table dinner), but we pushed through to Vega de Valcarce. The one good restaurant closed early and there isn't much else to do. We ended up having to eat a crappy pizza and the accommodation I booked was not open when we arrived (I never did get my $$ refunded.) Just when we thought we would be sleeping on the nearest park bench, the Englishmen called and talked their hostal into keeping their door open until we got there. The woman running the Pension Fernandez was absolutely LOVELY. The icing on the cake showed up the next morning when we woke up to a kitchen lined with homemade cakes and muffins she had baked fresh the night before. Yum.

Swipe for a transformation ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’•โœจโœจ . I remember first being injured hearing, โ€œ you have a 50/50 chance of walking again. Even if you do start walking youโ€™ll wear down quick.โ€ I beat that 50 but now Iโ€™m trying to beat the whole being a functional walker. Every night of being in rehab Iโ€™d google โ€˜ How to teach myself how to walkโ€™ or โ€˜People walkingโ€™ .. not knowing it really wouldnโ€™t be that easy. (Btw no results showed๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ) I realize that each morning Iโ€™d wake up and couldnโ€™t move my legs that it wouldnโ€™t be easy but I tried and I fought EVERYDAY for what I can do now. . . โ€œI remember the days I prayed for things I have now.โ€ . . #spinalcordinjury #sci #walkingsci #sciwalking #spinalcordinjuryrecovery #spinalcordinjuryawareness #goals #transformation #paralysisrecovery #paralysis #walkingwithparalysis #noafos #wheelchair #paraplegic

Loving the new home setup and Winston is taking his therapy dog responsibilities very seriously (yes, he just jumped right up there on his own).โค๏ธ We did some therapeutic petting today with JM's weak arm - definitely added a purpose and motivation for him. Neubie + Therapy Dog + Awesome Patient = ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ”ฅ . Some of the benefits of therapy dogs in rehab are as follows: Lowers BP/Improves cardiovascular health | The act of petting produces an automatic relaxation response | Diminishes overall physical pain | Helps with speech disorders | Lifts spirits and lessens depression (which is unfortunately not uncommon with those who have had a stroke) | And maybe most importantly right now it increases socialization (safely, of course, during this period of distancing).๐Ÿพ . Winston has been a therapy dog not only to my patients these last two weeks but to me as well. It's a weird time filled with uncertainty and it's OK to feel scared or sad. But, do what you can to find the positives, the little things, in everyday life. For me, it is my work and my patients (and little Winston) that I am so grateful for during this time.๐Ÿ™ . #therapydog #petting #itsthelittlethings #strokerehab #strokerecovery #paralysisrecovery #neuropt #neurorehab #neubie #estim #electricgains #functionaltraining #stressrelief #winston #homegym #homeoffice #ilovemyjob

This exercise is called modified burpee. You must have good range of motion at your hips, knees and ankles. Youโ€™ll need 2 pillows, one under your ankles and one behind your knees. For this exercise you are going to go from your stomach to sitting on your knees and clap your hands over your head. If you do high reps, at 21 reps, you can also challenge your cardiovascular. Good luck.

Walking is, in my opinion, the most under-rated and under-utilised exercise that there is. Yet it has so many health benefits and is little to no impact so practically anyone can do it. _ Put it this way if the girl with the paralysed leg and foot can get out then anyone can! ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ _ There is really no excuses at the minute since the gyms are all closed and we are all still allowed out once a day to get some fresh air and exercise. _ Believe me I am making FULL use of this and am walking everywhere. Otherwise Iโ€™d be climbing the walls with boredom. Not only does it get my step count higher than normal but is also great for my mindset and helps me stay positive. Itโ€™s free to do so why not get out and explore your local area? Youโ€™ll be amazed at what is right on your doorstep! _ I think it would be so easy to fall into the trap of having a negative mindset considering the current situation that we are all facing however me being miserable isnโ€™t going to make it go away any quicker so I am absolutely determined to stay on top of my mental health and stay upbeat and positive. Even speaking to random strangers who are walking past helps break up the tedium of the day and for all I know I could be the only human interaction that that person has that day so why not make it a cheery one! ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ _ lets do this, together we can beat this! ๐Ÿ’œ _ #togetherfitness #T28 #LTCG #fitness #walking #positivity #happy #warrior #fighter #typeonediabetes #t1d #t1dlookslikeme #believeinyourself #motivation #healthiswealth #fibromyalgia #chronicpain #chronicillness #invisibleillness #paralysisrecovery #freshair #progressnotperfection #neatup247

Two huge goals crossed off. 10K in one go with no walking aids. Almost 16 months in the making, full time training, sleeping, eating, everything toward walking again. Inspired by @zach_wy working toward that half marathon. #spinalcordinjury #spinalcordinjuryrecovery #spinalcordinjuryawareness #spinalcordinjurysurvivor #walkingafterspinalcordinjury #traumaticbraininjury #youllneverwalkagain #paraplegic #walkingparaplegic #persistance #paralysisrecovery #paralysisassasins #t12 #l2 #pararise

Our client Luis is doing what he can to #stayactive at home! He set up his own arm bike outside ๐ŸŒดโ˜€๏ธ... weโ€™ve been lucky to be self quarantining in Florida where the weather has been wonderful! Also happy to see Luis has kept his spirits high and makes the same goofy faces at home ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #spinalcordinjury #spinalcordinjuryrecovery #paralysis #paralysisrecovery #activitybasedtherapy #adaptivefitness #armbike #stayhome #centralflorida #orlando #florida #veteran #armyveteran #immunocomprimised #staysafe #stayhealthy #nextsteporlando #nextsteprecovery #sisu

What is World of SCI? --- World of SCI is a new approach to the physical, social and mental recovery for the SCI community. It is a program which includes educational information for those affected, professionals, caregivers and family in general, based on our specialized method of recovery. Our program will provide the most reliable information specific to SCI from specialists in the fields of: Exercise Physiology, Nursing, Nutrition, Occupational Therapy, Psychology, Research and Tourism.

Went for a walk today, it was a milestone as I usually have walked with a spotter. I sped the video up and compressed it down from 2 mins to 1 minute. Feeling like my legs are starting to feel more stable and solid underneath me. #spinalcordinjury #paralysisrecovery #sci #walk #gains #strength #wobbly #gym #fitness #muscle #progressnotperfection

Awesome exercise to do at home to improve core strength, balance and sensory input. Follow the video. To be effective you have to do 21 reps 5 round each side. Focus on control of your body throughout the movement/exercise. Please check out our YouTube channel for more home exercises. #physicaltherapy #scirecovery #paralysisassasins #paralysisrecovery #sciexercises #spinalcordinjury @virusintl @lalikasouza @fuerzasabrim
