We have now been working with Chris to do the Schroth exercises for two months. He has grown again – a positive sign – and he is definitely looking stronger. But the nagging to get him to do his exercises is still on-going and some days we all forget about them until about 9pm and then it’s just too late to expect him to do them.
I think it would be easier if he were older and could understand better that this time he has when he is still growing represents a real opportunity to prevent his curve progressing further – but I think that level of understanding only comes with maturity and that is not really present in a 13 year old boy!
But he is a trooper and he will do them when we insist.
I’m going to contact Debs and see if we can change his schedule at all to make it easier for him. Perhaps we could change the routine so that he does the exercises x4 or x5 times a week rather than every day…I don’t know but hopefully Debs will.
