Check out my lil 7yr old patient Alex that came in with #HeelPain
His Mama was concerned with his #FlatFeet
... a little bit o #CurlyToe
but I thought he was ok.
No orthotics, but gave him some fun exercises like 🐻 crawls on tiptoes, walk the tightrope line forwards & backwards, #kangaroo
jumps, 🐸 leaps then voila ... no pain! .
He enjoys his fun exercises but it’s just a game for him 👍🏾 For me, its about getting him moving correctly in a fun & safe way. Some good fundamentals learnt by his mum also as she mentions that she has heel pain also ... 🤭
Here is Alex on the @matassessment
MAT having some fun with a single leg balance exercise looking at #balance, #control, #landing, #sound, #coordination
(he’s got a Big 😀)
His right side looks good ... and his Left 👣 is a work in progress 😉.
plenty of time to get that one stronger!
