Have you ever had to try to explain to a physical therapist that there are some exercises you just can't do, no matter how hard you try, because your bones and muscles simply won't move that way?
We've got some instructional videos from a physical therapist who has worked with XLH patients before. Dr. Keith Steigbigl, PT, DPT, CSC, did a workshop on physical therapy for the 2017 XLH Day, and since that workshop wasn't recorded, he graciously arranged to record his recommended exercises separately, so everyone who couldn't attend the event can benefit from his advice. We're grateful to him and to Melissa Templeton, a student at Quinnipiac University's Frank Netter School of Medicine, who performed the exercises.
You can see all four videos at our youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOCxS6CV6NeNxoFFivOyNpg
As always, be sure to check with your health care provider before starting an exercise program!
