BSERCer of the month – December
Each month at BSERC we want to celebrate the achievements of one of our wonderful clients. For November our BSERCer of the month is Kelly Prendergast.
“I’ve had a few health issues and chronic pain for some years now. I remember feeling frustrated and saying ‘I just want to be able to do housework without getting an injury!’ At one point I was happy to report that I vacuumed and mopped in the same day. Through treatment and rehabilitation I manage my lower back condition, neck issues, numbness in my fingers and post-surgery and radiation exhaustion. My gym program simulated daily chores and other activities I have my sights set on. Last year my goal was to be able to do sports photography for hours on end and be able to lift and carry my backpack correctly when travelling. Goal achieved! I’m a positive person but learning about neuroplasticity gave me another level of perception of coping with chronic pain and an awareness of how my thought patterns can influence my conditions.”
