Today Kyah did some more rehab. Simply focusing on using unstable exercise equipment. This is to help activate her ligaments and tendons and wake up her nervous system in her foot again.
There is minimal movement of the foot and ankle, so there is minimal risk of injury or re-injury.
She saw Nika (dance teacher), today and they have come up with a plan – what stages she should be at and when, in order to achieve her dance goals. This has encouraged Kyah enormously, thank you Nika.
We are off to the doctor tomorrow to get a referral for an ultra sound to see if Kyah’s calf muscle is intact. we are believing it is completely fine, and that the lump is simply a knot and the lack of movement in the foot when the calf is squeezed is simply because the calf has atrophied.
