The team here did everything possible to make my son's experience fun, productive, and less scary. PTs Madison and Mia were always great with him, and they also explained the treatment, exercises, and "homework" to us as the parents so we could also help participate in his habilitation. thanks to the team my son went from not being able to even roll over to running around like Usain Bolt. Thanks y'all!
