Update from Parent

Our son was born with arthrogryposis, mainly affecting his lower limbs, hips, knees and of course, club feet. We have been doing The Anat Baniel Method with Doreen since January and we have seen remarkable improvement. He is now 9 months and can sit independently. He can get onto his tummy from sitting position. He has just started a little bit of commando crawl. His flextion contractures in his knees have significantly improved so much so, that when we went for a check up at the Orthopedic clinic the other day, the Doc said his knees can bend to 30 degrees and that is enough for him to stand. He has also recently started using his hip muscles more, which is great because that means he is gaining strength in those muscles. All the doctors and the physiotherapist have been commenting on how well he is progressing and are amazed at how well he is coping.

Here are the links for further info on the Anat Baniel Method. She is in America but this is just more info on the Method itself http://www.anatbanielmethod.com/help-children-overview.htm.

The following is the link to the website for Doreen and Chris, the Anat Baniel Method in London. We have been seeing Doreen. She is absolutely fantastic with children http://movementandwellbeing.com/special-needs-children

I just thought I’d share this as it has made such a difference in the progress our son has made.

Feel free to ask us any questions, if you’d like to know more about our experience.

Thanks
Dedre, Anthony and Jayden-Dax(son with Arthrogryposis)
