I have FSHD and have enjoyed your videos through the Society.. I have been doing PT 2x/ wk for a couple years. A great team but no background in neuro. I hav just moved to Fort.Myers, FL for 6 months of the year and I’d love to find a neuro based therapist near the zip of 33913 in Fort Myers. Can you direct me to such a person in this area?
