My boy is nine with mild CP on the left side. He's worn braces since he was two and has Botox injections several times -- they've been very helpful. Yes, I'm sure the braces are helping. And it's important to keep up with physical therapy exercises, both at home and with the therapist. As the child grows, the whole system changes. I mean even children without cp wake up one day taller and heavier. You'd have trouble negotiating the world if your body were constantly changing. And CP compounds the difficulty of the changes. But those orthotics and those exercises are most certainly helping your grandchild. Thank God for all those things.
Wish us luck. My boy's growing so quickly now we may have to go to serial casting or possibly surgery -- the braces can't keep up with his growth.
