I’m not sure I completely get it,” says Michael. “I have had to learn to work my hips and ankles to flex a few times at a dance, but I know I’ve been working. I just have to work it harder for my next session.”
It didn’t help that Michael was also suffering pain in his shoulder. “I went to my chiropractor, who gave me three cortisone injections in my shoulder, and it’s been a few weeks since,” he says. “I don’t think it’s worth it.

“At the end of the day, I’m just trying to make it work for my health,” he says.
“My family is so thankful for my support, but I don’t know what I can do yet,” says Michael as he leaves his home in California.
