  1. What an innovative and motivating post! I don’t know anyone in a wheelchair but posts like this are really great. Well done.

    1. Thank you!! If you ever meet someone in a wheelchair, you know where to find some exercises 😅 Big hugs!!

  2. I love this David. I visit our local rehab center on Sunday’s and I know a few people that will benefit greatly. I’ll share with the nurses – thank you for helping all of them!!! Thanks to Dr. Taylor too… Hugs!

  3. Hi David! I thought I left a message here, but maybe it didn’t go through. I was visiting NY for the holidays (family on both our sides) and it might have gotten lost in the wi-fi connection :(… Anyway, I volunteer at the local senior / rehab center and I will be sure to let them know about these exercises. They can help a lot of people there and I’ll let the activities director know – they are always looking for good ways to get the residents active – this will help them a great deal – thank you from all of them and the people that help them – so much!!
    Hugs and Happy, happy, happy – prosperous and healthy New Year! Big hugs David!

  4. Great info! Thanks for sharing. Don’t know that I’ll be able to do much with the leg exercises, though (hence the reason for my wheelchair! LOL) I could use the rest of it, so look forward to that.

    1. I’m so happy you find it useful, most of it at least 😅
      Please, let me know how it works for you 🙏

  5. Hi Chape, do you mind if i format these exercises (like these: https://professionalshealthconnection.com/exercises/lower-back-exercises/#sc5)? I’d like to share them with the Senior home I visit on Sunday’s… There are quite a few people who are in wheelchairs and I used to volunteer for the activities director – I think if she can get the trainer to hold a class on these and then give them out, the residents may be able to do them. Is that ok? I can check with the good Doctor who wrote the infographic if you are ok with this. Thank so much David! PS. I’ll also publish an article (reblogs don’t work on the Arcane wordpress – they disappear after awhile – they don’t know why) – but I’ll credit both you and Dr. Taylor.
    What do you think?

    Thanks for considering :) hugs!

    1. Hi Joan! Please, share it the way that works best for you. I have no problem with that :)
      Dr. Taylor is a nice guy, I´m sure he´ll be glad to hear from you and what you´re doing at the Senior home!
      Big hugs, dear!!

      1. Thank you so very much David… It’ll be a future project, but it’s on my mind! You are AWESOME! Thank you!!! Big, huge hugs back atcha…

      2. My pleasure, Joan! ;) Feel free to use anything else on my blog, you need no permission ;)
