Karen's Journey

Karen's Inspiring Journey with Multiple Sclerosis Rehabilitation at My Health Team

Can determination and the right support really help someone with multiple sclerosis run again?

Karen's story proves that it can. Diagnosed over 30 years ago, Karen faced huge challenges and a tough prognosis.

But her determination and the care she received from My Health Team changed her life in ways she never thought possible.

Overcoming Adversity: Karen's Battle with Multiple Sclerosis

Karen's story shows how powerful determination and support can be. She was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) over 30 years ago and faced the scary reality of possibly losing her ability to walk.

MS is a tough disease that causes fatigue, trouble moving, and muscle weakness. But Karen never gave up.

After a severe relapse, Karen was told she might not walk on her own again and could need a wheelchair. She was determined to prove them wrong.

The Turning Point: Finding the Right Support Team

Karen found My Health Team and met Andrew, an exercise physiologist who believed she could run again, even if it took time.

This was a major turning point for her. Andrew introduced Karen to other members of My Health Team, including a deep tissue massage specialist. This complete care approach made a huge difference.

Karen learned how important it is to have a team that listens to your goals and works together to help you reach them. This teamwork was crucial for her progress, giving her both physical and emotional support.

Achieving the Impossible: From Walker to Running Shoes

With the help of My Health Team and her own determination, Karen started to improve. She began running again, surpassing all expectations. Karen even travelled overseas, doing things she was once told were impossible.

Her journey from using a walker to running is truly inspiring and shows what can be achieved with the right support and attitude. Karen’s advice to others in similar situations is simple: don’t give up and find a supportive health team.

She encourages people to seek out professionals who listen to their goals and work with them to achieve their dreams. Karen believes that with the right support, anyone can overcome challenges and achieve their potential.

Karen's incredible journey from facing a future in a wheelchair to running again is a powerful reminder of the importance of perseverance, community, and expert care in managing chronic illnesses. Her story highlights how essential it is to have a dedicated support team and a strong personal resolve to overcome the challenges of multiple sclerosis.
