Let's get Physical! (yeah I went there) Intense PT.
We're steppin' it up. In addition to all of Josie's therapies we are receiving from Early Intervention (NY state's program), we just started working with Amy Eapen at Keep Moving Forward, which is conveniently located at the same center as hyperbarics medical solutions. Amy is one of the few physical therapists in the country who uses Thera Suits and the Universal Exercise Unit to help with mobility, muscle conditioning, coordination and so much more. Amy offers an intense program where patients come 5 days a week for 3 hours a day for three weeks. We plan to do this eventually, but right now we're seeing Amy once a week for an hour and a half before an HBOT dive. In two sessions, Amy already sees improvements. There's no question Jojo has to build those little muscles, especially in her arms, so hopefully this will help her get there sooner. I love how all the therapists Jojo works with can't help kissing her the whole time.
