Gaining Confidence on Her Feet

video

Here's a quick look at Whitney working out with Melanie's encouragement.  She's got her new, lower ankle braces on.  And thanks to the new flexibility in her ankles, you can see how she's bending at the knee and ankle to better balance herself.  She actually takes a step when she needs to get her balance as well, which is something she's only been doing the last little while.  Whitney's still got some strength she needs to gain, but this is a big improvement over when her ankles were locked at a 90 degree angle.  Very exciting!

Great video! I could definitely see that Whitney was shifting her weight to help her balance. I'm glad to hear that things are going well and that Whitney was such a trooper for the casting!
