Anyone can use compression for an artificial sense of stability and posturing.
However, Newton's Law is involved and the muscles learn to push versus transfer in and out of passive and active phases.
When the push is over, they release - so more rounding and muscle weakness.
Also, breathing is not muscle-based.
The suit can lower oxygen and speech abilities.
SPML Response by Parent and Movement Lesson Practitioner, Savithri
We made our AFOs with Dr. Jordan.
Totally worth the travel.
He saw the whole body as a system and not only the feet.
Once we finished the surgery, we flew to Michelle to start the sessions- with casts on.
This is a video of my son, two years post-surgery, and Movement Lesson.
We did a combination of movement lessons and Astro Lessons with Michelle - the best decision ever made for my son.
Once the casts were off, we had more of Michelle's sessions for another two weeks before flying out.
My son was a toe walker who was not independent pre-spml but he is fully independent one-year post-op and it's not the surgery alone that made the difference but it was Michelle who worked her magic on him.
We saw Dr. Yngve,
The casts have to be on for three weeks, after which it can be changed into AFOs so one day after surgery we came to Michelle at Phoenix 3 weeks post-surgery when we flew to see Paul Jordan.
