Following a stroke this patient came to me to improve balance and co-ordination, and most importantly, mobiliity. Prior to the stroke this patient had a long history of involvement in sports and had suffered several injuries in the past, however, his health was generally good.
As he was only four at the time, his body was changing at a rapid rate and therefore great care had to be exercised in acheiving a gradual realignment of the musculo-skeletal structures. The key to achieving a permanent resolution of this condition was to control the alignment of the main joints between hip and foot so that the connective tissue change and ensuring growth spurts stayed within normal limits.
I now see this patient once or twice a year to ensure that his body stays in balance whilst he is still growing. This enables him to pursue an active sporting life and the life he wants to lead.
