I took Mika to our orthotist (she makes Bryns leg braces) bc Mikas leg just didnt look or act right imo. It rotated in att the ankle and he doesnt lie it flat, iinstead he crosses it over his opposite leg. My worset fear was nerve damage from his birth. But the Dr said he had some really tight tendons from his left hip to his left ankle.



So we have some PT to do.

Does anyone elses LO have tight tendons or lack of range of motion?

Do the PT exercises and massages help quickly or is it a long process?

Sorry that Mika has to do PT, but I guess it beats the alternative, right?

I have no experience or advice, but I'm sure that with proper therapy, his little leg tendons will work themselves out just fine. I would imagine there would be some more immediate progress, with overall healing/fixing taking a bit longer? Just my thoughts?

Yep! Aaron's right leg is tight and the ped showed me how to massage it out. She said it was probably because he was really packed in when in my uterus. (I'm petite and he was pretty big).

Julius had that, the doctor told me at every diaper change to run my finger on the outside of his calf down to foot 10 times because the reflex will cause him to straighten his ankle after 2 weeks it was a lot better. and 1 month later it's gone.
