Looking Ahead to Change: Little by Little
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

    Jackson,

    Thanks for posting this! Is he doing this in New York? This is actually an old treatment that was used for cardiac patients before they started doing bypass surgery--though I don't know if it was timed for the counter-pulses to go with diastolic function. A few cardiologists still offer this. I have never seen it prescribed for OI, but it sounds great!

    Yes, Dr. Enlander provides this treatment in his office in NYC.
    I had it done twice so far.
    I would continue with it but, it's too hard for me at this point to travel into the city.

    I would definitely try it more if and when I can travel more easily.
    It's like getting aerobic exercise without the adverse side effects pwc usually get.
