While there she had 3-4 hours/day of intensive physical and aqua therapy using state-of-the-art equipment and working with licensed physical therapists who were highly experienced in patients with spinal cord injuries. Therapists focused on strengthening the muscles in her weak, right leg and on improving her walking pattern (gait). They also developed an idea for a different kind of leg brace that she may be able to use going forward. In addition, they provided us with a home therapy plan tailored specifically to Sophia's needs. With this plan, we can continue to work at home on improving function in her leg.
Thank you to all of the Chive Charities donors for helping us make this trip happen!
