Getting to grips with using a mobility aid

Breaking it down - A multiple sclerosis podcast

21-06-2023 • 1 hr 25 mins

Have you been told to consider using a stick or wheelchair, but don't think you're ready for it yet? Maybe you're noticing changes to your walking ability and you’re wondering what you can do about it? In this episode, we talk to neuro physio Laura about helpful mobility aids, and how to change your perspective on using them. We also check in with Hayley (my_sassability), who was diagnosed with MS aged just 13. She now uses mobility aids and is passionately advocating the importance of being seen not just using her wheelchair, but being proud to use her wheelchair.
