My mother has been developing akinesia from the amount of time she has spent between being bedridden and in a wheelchair. She has been suffering some of the more debilitating effects of diabetes for the last year or so, and we worry that her condition will only continue to get worse as her diabetes does.
Do you think that a physical therapist would help with someone who is suffering from post-surgery traumas and difficult to heal lesions?
I would really love to do more for my mother but it seems like an impossible situation. I feel that the more her movement abilities deteriorate the less likely she will be to ever recover.
