CASE STUDIES

Nital Walks straight and tall

Nital was born with deformed ankles and knees. When she was six years old, she received surgery to straighten her ankles. When she was 14, both her knees were operated upon, but doctors did not provide any post-operative physical therapy, so she still had a hunched gait. When she was 15, she visited SRVC for regular physiotherapy. A Paediatric Orthopaedist performed a corrective surgery, and with the help of physiotherapy, walking sticks and push-knee splints, she is walking upright.
