"Better Sleep"
Dr Andrew Veale

91 min PAL DVD
We live in an increasingly sleepless society and for people who have polio the battle to have a good night’s sleep is even more difficult. Compromised muscles and weakness in some polio people lessen their ability to get restorative sleep. Over the last 20 years people with polio have benefitted from Dr Veale’s help with their breathing difficulties. Even if you don’t identify with respiratory problems, you will find Dr Veale’s talk helpful as the wider subject of sleep will be covered. And who couldn’t do with a better night’s sleep?
