Kt Posture – then and now

This is Kt at around two years old, two years prior to us going to the US and Dr Park at SLCH to have the SDR operation. As you can see, our happy little bunny has a challenged posture. she’s hunched due to a body contorting combination of a weak core muscle and spasticity. She is also incapable of sitting upright without support on her right side making eating and holding things difficult. Imagine how distracting to her education, enjoyment and interaction this would be. Without intervention, such a posture would quite probably lead to scoliosis and hip displacement among other physical issues. 

Below is Kt’s posture one year after SDR at the age of five. Raw proof of the effectiveness of SDR.

Muscles in Brussels

Atomium Scientist and
Beachcomber…

A great roadtrip to Brussels via Ostend got Kt moving. LOADS of stairs  mastered – maybe 300-400 over the 2-day trip – and a good deal of running too. We had taken the buggy with us so she never felt disheartened by distances and more often than not she wanted to get out, experience and run about independently. As ever, big brah Kian was there to guide her.
