First Toe Touch

Published January 27, 2020 by Caitlin Rose

Touching toes – definitely not something that we can all do, CP Diplegian or otherwise. You can see what this means to her, us and Gareth too.

Kt is now 10.5 yrs and this video demonstrates the work she has put in over the years. Under the longterm guidance of Move4Sport’s S&C coach Gareth Shelbourne, Kt has now achieved another loooongterm goal.

Subsidising her weekly work with Gareth, Kt has been using our home vibration plate to help core balance, stretching and endurance every day for one month so far.

We’ll continue to find innovative ways to adapt her routines to her growing body, feisty character and busy lifestyle.

Trying to continue her great cycling learning, Caitlin made it round the 1.5 miles of Kenley’s Aerodrome yesterday morning.

We stopped and reset as required. Here she is on the last bit; tired but still enjoying the freedom and independence cycling can bring.

Keep going, Twinkle! – very proud mum and dad x

This stunning Sunday saw Kt levelling up big time. She bravely worked with Mr Jonathan Spearman Oxx, a highly recommended and patient cycling coach.

Initially Jonathan worked with us to optimise the bike set up, a major challenge in itself as the usual rules don’t apply.

Within the hour he had her starting off, stopping relatively safely and cycling/balancing like this. Quite an achievement. Very well done to Kt for sticking at it! It was exhausting for both of them but a very rewarding outcome.

Ready for another session in two weeks.
