We’ve all heard how important a well-tailored exercise program is for people with FSH muscular dystrophy. This is easier said than done, especially if you have difficulty standing up or worry about falling during exercise. In today’s webinar, Dr. Nikia Stinson discusses upper body weakness and pain that are frequently experienced by people with FSHD and describes exercises that can be done from a seated position to help address these issues.

Dr. Stinson graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Kinesiology in 2003 and Bachelor’s of Science in Human Science from the University of Michigan-Flint in 2005.  Nikia studied physical therapy at the University of Michigan-Flint, where she obtained her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2007.

Dr. Stinson’s professional career began at Kennedy Krieger Institute, where she has worked for over 11 years. In 2008,  she was a physical therapist working in the International Center for Spinal Cord Injuries working with patients with various level spinal cord injuries, MS, TBI, transverse myelitis, and other neurological conditions. In 2015, Nikia joined the Center of Genetic Muscle Disorders working with patients with heredity muscle diseases. As a physical therapist and lead clinical evaluator, Dr. Stinson participates in ongoing clinical research at the Center for Genetic Muscle Disorders.
