One piece of state-of-the-art rehab technology that we use with stroke patients is Galileo Whole Body Vibration. It provides somatosensory stimulation with the goal of “jump starting” muscle contractions. Through the intense high-repetition rate called frequency, the patient’s ability to efficiently recruit the muscle fibers and coordinate movement being performed by the joint and muscle tissue is enhanced, thus improving strength.

IN THIS EPISODE…
If you struggle with addiction of any kind (whether it’s to a substance like drugs and alcohol or to a behavior like sex or eating), there are some useful DBT skills you can apply when a craving strikes.
Here’s what works for me…
1) Agree to be uncomfortable.
2) Distract from the craving by crowding out the thoughts.
3) Willing hands & half smile.
4) Remind myself of why I’m working towards avoiding the craving
5) If I must engage in the behavior, do it slowly, and mindfully.
6) Repeat until new habit is formed. Video Rating: / 5
