Day 215: AFO Tune Up

After an excellent morning at school Madison visited Dr. ERIC this afternoon to get her AFO’S fixed up. She still continues to grow at a quick rate and the way her straps were fused to her “boots” they didn’t distribute the pressure evenly on the top of her foot. It then was leaving red marks and then leaving Madison not wanting to wear them for long periods of time.

Madison loves to visit because they have the best toys to play with. Their wide selection really helps when the appointments that tend to last 1 to 1.5 hours.


Madison has been responding really well to her stretches lately and it really showed today. Some may not think this is a Big deal….but it is!….look how close to the ground her heals are while she is playing. Free play usually tends to bring Madison straight up on her toes. ..but not today!


Once Dr Eric finished his magic in his back workshop Madison was much happier with the fit of her AFO’S. He widened the padding on the top strap to better distribute the pressure and he bumped out the ankles and fused the insert to her boot. Here’s hoping we won’t have to go back for a while.
