If you have been suffering from chronic spinal stenosis, you know how debilitating it can be. On the worst of days, you may have very little ability left to control your leg muscles, and have a hard time moving about. You probably just want to stay in your bed and not do much of any physical activity at all. Going just about anywhere takes so much effort.
I know how it can be when you try to walk yet the legs can’t move. I have been in that situation before once, walking on a path at the altitude of 12,000 feet. It feels like the air is taken out of your lungs, it feels like you are doing your best to move ahead but in reality you are going nowhere. It is just a weird feeling. Weird and scary.
But, there is a surprising possibility for you to get going and go places…
…and fast, even with chronic spinal stenosis affecting your walking… I will share it with you now.
When I walked on the road up in the mountains, I had a offroad four-wheel-drive Jeep overtake me on that road. I thought… if I only had a motor vehicle now!
And guess what? This can be a solution for your mobility problem too!
This is a great news for you and I. No longer will we be confined to a chair or bed.
So what is this surprising possibility to move about when your legs won’t listen to you?
Getting a mobility scooter!
What is a mobility scooter? Mobility scooter is used by people with mobility restrictions that prevent them from getting from one place to another. A relatively small electric engine will drive it forward. Mobility scooter runs on one or more rechargeable batteries. It can drive you around for dozens of miles on a single charge.
Mobility scooters for adults use 3 to 4 wheels and feature a big, comfortable seat. It is like taking your chair with you everywhere you go. If you don’t even feel like riding you can just stay seated in the comfort of your chair. The mobility scooter is safe too. The maximal speed can limited to 4 mph or so, so it is quite harmful.
In effect, you will be able to ride from place to place in your house or on the sidewalks without using your legs at all. Yes, you heard me right. Many people use it for indoor transportation – a lot.
And yes, you can get your mobility scooter in just 4 days from today!
The following two things will get you started with getting your mobility back:
