B is for botox

When I started this blog, I searched the net for related blogs and found this one 

I support whatever works but I would never try this treatment personally I am not tight enough to qualify anyway.  I had a friend that was extremely tight and it worked for him. I am a quad spastic CP case this means that all four limbs are affected, so commonly this would have been suggested for me but I don’t exhibit the signs in my upper body. It’s only really noted in my arms when i am getting dressed as my movement is a little odd then.

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

  1. Hi there,
    I just came across your blog and thought I’d introduce myself. I was a bit surprised when I clicked on the link and found my own blog! Haha. Anyway, my son has “mild” CP affecting the left side of his body. Despite his diagnosis, he’s an active little guy who plays ice hockey in a mainstream program and keeps me on my toes. As he went through growth spurts, though, he started to become tighter in his left leg and even lost some skills, such as being able to hold his leg straight out in front of him when he sat. After literally years of research and going back and forth, we decided to give botox a try. He only got injections in his left leg – specifically, in his hamstrings and achilles tendon. So far, it has been amazing – it’s been less than a week and Daniel is sitting with his leg out in front and is taking bigger steps with his left leg. Two things his orthopedic surgeon mentioned were that it only works long – term when combined with lots of PT, and that it works better in younger kids (especially under age 6) who are still developing than it does in older people. Considering that, I understand your decision to not use botox.
    Anyway, I’ve enjoyed reading your blog and am looking forward to reading more. Take care!

  2. You’ll have to excuse my second introduction – I’m operating without coffee today. =) I thought this blog looked familiar, and yes I have been here before. Again, looking forward to reading more of your posts.
