Muscle activation strategies for FSH muscular dystrophy

Our Dallas support group meeting on January 19th featured outstanding presentations and hands-on demonstrations of muscle activation and the Rolf method, which one of our new Dallas-area members has found very beneficial in addressing his FSHD issues. Note that these methods have not been studied scientifically for efficacy in FSHD; we are simply sharing patients’ experiences. Please consult your PT or doctor if you have questions about whether these approaches are appropriate for you.

The meeting was recorded (scroll down to see the video). We hope you find it as interesting and useful as did those who had the good fortune to attend in person. Here are the featured speakers:
