I had some physio when I was sixteen. I didn't find it painful, just dull. I was already quite flexible and strong when I started, which perhaps explains why it wasn't painful for me.

It did help to improve my balance, although I used to get bored with the exercises and rush through them if I wasn't supervised by someone.

Heh, I rushed through even when supervised. I got bored very quickly. But I was 13, so I think things would change now.
I had it from 13 right through until 14 where the hospital thought that breaking my legs and stretching the muscle might improve my walking. I refused to go back. Might have the treatment wrong, but it was definately something to do with breaking bones. I hated it, thought it painful, uncomfortable, and annoying. I have poor flexibility.

I had it when I was quite small in order to help with walking, balance and other coordination things.

I'm considering it again now to help strengthen my legs for walking. There are a few simple exercises I know I should be doing anyway (lifting legs, spinning ankles) but they're dull and I forget!

Try and get my ankle to touch the ground when I'm on my bottom step
Trying to stick my leg up the wall
and some weird stretch you probably do in PE that I cant describe.

Bumping this back up, I'm going to adult Physio for muscle excercises and support with getting a disabled car badge. This is good news!
