Restored confidence in my weakend legs
I discovered Power Plate as I’d been researching physical therapies between dual total hip replacement surgeries. I’ve been very immobile for over a year now. Lost 55 pounds preparing for surgery #1 which went great! Meanwhile, I’m still unable to walk unassisted while waiting to get scheduled for surgery #2. Climbing stairs would take its toll so I’ve stopped that. I’ve been unable to use my stationary bike and elliptical machines due to pain and eventual soreness which follows. That led to prescription pills & over the counter remedies for temporary relief. I found the power plate family of devices and selected the Move. After my first couple of sessions I realized I needed the stability bar addon which allows me to confidently use the machine. I’m enjoying my new found activity these sessions provide and having a renewed sense of confidence in my legs and balance. I haven’t been this active for months and it feels great. I’m also feeling better about my preparedness for that second surgery. I wish I would’ve known about this sooner, I’m glad I have it now though and I expect I’ll continue using it as I recover and heal.
