Summary: Due to a hit and run, I have had 2 disks removed (c5c6 and c6c7) I currently have a plate and 3 screws in my neck. I now have chronic pain and As you can imagine my mobility has been affected a great deal.i can't turn my neck or head hardly at all. And simple tasks such as blow drying my hair I often find difficult. I'm also restricted to a 10lb weight limit But the biggest battle I face is depression. Most of my time is spent cooped up in the house. I have not yet been cleared by my surgeon to return to work, or even to drive a car. I get really down bc I use to be a very active social person, but with my injury now, i'm prevented from doing such things. 2 weeks ago I was introduced to the waveflo paddle board. I was a little nervous bc it's been over 3 years since Iv done anything remotely athletic. I first kneeled on the board, to get a feel for it. I quickly knew it was something I could handle! I stood up and started paddling....as I paddled up and down the water I could not contain my excitement! I was doing it! I was really doing it!!!!The first fun thing Iv been able to do in what feels like forever! It didn't bother my neck or back at all. The next day when I woke up, I could believe it, I was not sore at all! I'm sure healthy mobile people this is a ton of fun, but for people like me, it's an escape, a glimmer of the outside world that Iv been shielded from, in fear that I could hurt my self farther. On this board I never once felt like I was over doing it, nor that I was going to fall off and get hurt. I had so much fun, it was the only physical active that I can do/felt conformable to do. I'm so happy I found the waveflo board!
Pros: Even more than being able to use this reinvented paddle board, I'm thankful for the hope, and sense of freedom I had for an afternoon.for a moment I felt like my old self and that is something I won't soon forget. I think it's an amazing product, something I urge everyone to try,
Cons: I'd really like to see a pink one, I'm a girly girl at heart ;)
Usage: Exercise, gr8 for my mental health....positive mind body and soul
