Back using his sticks and 4 independent steps…

One of the first questions the therapists ask when we start a block of physio here at Footsteps is: ‘What do you hope to get out of this 3 week session?’ This time I didn’t have any clear goal as obviously we have just had surgery and so it is all about building his confidence back up and strengthening those new muscles however, at the back of my mind I hoped that he would be back using his sticks… Today he not only ended the session walking out using his sticks, his therapist also told me he had taken 4 independent steps during their session. Today is a beautiful day!
