Martha Has a Minor Operation on Her Legs

Martha has just had a minor operation to inject botox into her leg muscles. This has the effect of relaxing the muscles (temporarily) so that focused physiotherapy can work on enabling Martha to straighten her legs and move her feet into a more normal position. This will hopefully aid Martha in standing and walking, something she has started to struggle with recently.

Martha will now have extra intensive physiotherapy over the coming weeks to make the most of her newly flexible muscles and she will continue to work on this in the months to come with weekly physiotherapy at school and at home.

  1. I wondered where the botox was to be targeted. Fingers crossed it works and gives her the movement she needs. :-) xxx
