Matthew saw his regular p/t for the first time in three weeks. I was thrilled when she said his foot was loose. Yay! Some good news finally!
She said today was the first time she did not have to spend time rotating and stretching just to get his talus bone in place for the session.
His active dorsiflexion is also back to pulling straight up.
And, in the end, she complimented me on my stretching. Finally, I am doing it right!
She felt that the padding that his orthotist added has helped as well.
It is not all good news, he is still supinating and when he runs, his foot turns in, but to me, this is fantastic news.
And on to my foot.
I have some rather lovely hues of purple, red and green coming out on the outside of my foot.
And even on the inside.
I saw my chiropractor today. He said my hobbling around really messed up my back. I have been really sore in the mornings. He told me to walk as normally as I can. Ok, will try. But I have to say, as I sit here and type with my foot on a chair and pillow... ouch.
