M Walking One Year Post SPML Surgery

I took these videos tonight to send to Dr. Nuzzo in NJ.  I want his input on bracing for M.  She's outgrown the custom orthotics he prescribed for her last year, and wowwwweeee she's doing great without them too!  She's not wearing AFOs in these videos!

In the first one she is doing her best to "run."  She wants to run so badly!  She's proven so many people wrong that said "She'd never…" so I just know she WILL run one day.



In this video I asked her to go slower.  The control she has going up the hill and back down is really incredible.  She could not walk like that before surgery.  Giving her the ability to play more freely and be more independent outside was my main goal of the surgery.




If you want to see "before" videos, there are some on my youtube account or you can click the labels on the side to bring up older posts related to the same topics.
