    I used to be an outpatient for physical therapy at a  local hospital. Once I learned the exercises and became sufficient with them on my own, my physical therapist gave me the same program to complete at home.

    2-3 times a week, I work on my core, balance and stretching exercises. I feel as though this helps builds strength back in my legs to assist me with walking.

    Do you practice physical therapy?  What exercise(s) best benefits you?

    Same.

    The most important thing I took away was how to do a heel drop stretch (https://blackbeltwiki.com/heel-drop-stretch) for my calves. I used to have problems with foot drop (where your toes graze the floor mid-step), but after doing that stretch after my cardio every day for a few weeks, that doesn’t happen to me anymore.

    PT twice weekly. The physical therapist can help with a home program.Stretch, stretch, stretch!!
    My physical therapy incorporates MNRI (https://masgutovamethod.com/the-method/who-can-benefit-from-the-method) is even better. FA may not be listed … I haven’t checked recently, but I have personally benefited profoundly when my pt began incorporating MNRI into my pt visits. Plus parents/patients/family members can learn techniques to do at home.
