Nature of Project: TBD – Swimming Pool OR Spa OR Swim Spa
We have a deserving combat wounded veteran in this area that has applied but before we can move forward, we need your help. We need a project/construction lead in the area to coordinate with. If you or someone you know would be willing to step-up and help us complete our mission please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Since the accident I have had lower back pain. I have degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis and sciatic pain which causes numbness, back spasms and tingling down my left side. I grew up playing baseball and hockey. Prior to my accident I was in the best shape of my life. I have found it extremely difficult finding a type of physical activity that helps in my recovery. I have tried running, CrossFit, biking, weight lifting and swimming. Since my range of motion is extremely limited on my left side this causes my balance to be off, which in turn causes more back pain. Having a pool/hot tub would enable me to exercise without my prosthetic, have better balance, decrease my pain and take the pressure off my lower back so that I’m able to exert effort and feel comfortable while doing so. It would also give me a chance to keep up with my kids and enjoy my time spent with them.
