From the ‘Dikul’ Russian physiotherapy method, laserpunture in France, biofeedback in Miami, through to neuro physio in the UK and the US – Marrianne has always had an open mind to ideas to help her move forward.
Therapy has never been about expecting miracles, it’s always been about progress. Progress for the mind and body. Marginal gains add up. When you have a high level of paralysis like Marrianne, those marginal gains can be life changing. Whether it’s building up the strength to feed herself independently, being able to send a text without assistance, gaining enough core strength to not need a safety strap in her wheelchair, the list of positives goes on and that’s not to mention the obvious health benefits of keeping in shape. Being a high level tetraplegic doesn’t mean you can’t look after your body.
