There was a pain in my arm and a tingling in my face. He went to bed in the afternoon and when
he woke up half of his body was paralyzed. We had to call
an ambulance and get him to a hospital. He started visiting
Košumberk health resort and now he goes there for a month
long rehabilitation every year. The first time he was there they contacted
him and he found out about botox treatment. – I used to not be able to move my arm.
– When the botox is applied his whole arm is relaxed. It’s easier because… his shoulder didn’t
hurt because if you can’t move your arm it’s like you don’t have it, right?
He had to use a variety of tools. Tools that decreased
pressure on his shoulder. He had to hold a tennis ball, a foam ball
or a spiky massage ball in his hand. His nails were scratching his palm. Before the botox treatment, his palm was
scraped because his hand was like this. He was clenching his fist. After they applied
the botox, his whole arm relaxed. His body relaxed after the treatment. If you’re recovering
from stroke and you’re all stiff, this helps to loosen your body up. This goes to
anyone with a similar condition, even if it’s
a different injury and also you, – the caretakers.
