MilestoneMonday: Errol stands up
23 years ago, Errol suffered a sudden and tragic haemorrhagic stroke which resulted in hemiplegia on his right side. Hemiplegia is lifelong a condition resulting from damage to the brain, which affects movement on one side of the body. Ever since this incident, Errol had struggled with standing up directly from a seated position, due to loss of strength and the natural fear of injury that comes after a traumatic accident
We've been seeing Errol twice a week since 2016, and through his rehabilitation with us he has recovered significant amounts of strength, focus and technique, and a few weeks ago he finally accomplished his FIRST sit to stand! This is a tremendous milestone, and as you can see in the video the movement is a breeze for him as of late.
Well done, Errol! This shows so much independence and determination, and we're so proud of you. 💪
