Day 239: Treadmill Walking!

Madison was at Variety Village this afternoon doing some physio with Stephanie. A new skill they worked on today was walking on a treadmill.

There are many studies that provide preliminary evidence that children with CP younger than 4 years of age can improve their gross motor function, walking speed, and walking endurance after intensive locomotor treadmill training. We are thrilled that Madison will be incorporating this approach into her therapy and she is quite happy to do it. If you have us on Facebook, check out the posted video of her walking.
