MS and Parkinson’s

MS and Parkinson’s

Virginia Bishop has been living with multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease since the mid-nineties. Her declining strength and balance had gradually infringed upon her quality of life. Fortunately, this brought Virginia to Walnut Ridge in Clive, IA. Nick Drey, the senior community’s Director of Wellness created an aquatic therapy protocol for Virginia in their HydroWorx pool. Her water rehabilitation sessions have produced fantastic results — Her activity level has increased dramatically; she’s built enough stamina and core strength to perform daily tasks as well as play the piano again.
