Coen’s experience at Shriners is nothing like anywhere else he has been.

It is the one place that Coen willingly wants to visit. Because of his health issues, mainly early on, he has been around…. in terms of clinics, hospitals, appointments and procedures. He’s a bit of an expert.

At Shriners, the difference is that he is not scared and does not fuss when we go. He receives excellent treatment from all the outstanding professionals who work there. He is comfortable. They talk to him and not over him and through us. They read his body language and can tell if he is getting anxious. More than his cerebral palsy, he is on the autism spectrum. He may seem like he is not listening, but he is. He is always aware. I love how they show him so much respect.

He has had a variety of services at Shriners.  Currently he has physical therapy.  In the past he has had botox treatment for his Cerebral palsy, AFO’s or splints, and, most recently, a 2nd motion analysis session. The first one was several years prior.

The latest experience Coen had was something called Motion Analysis. It is super high tech and very cool! What the process does is analyze the way he walks through technology so they can understand the best way to fit his braces and predict his future needs. These little electrodes are put all over his body (they gave us some to take home to practice with first, smart!). It is always best for Coen to know what is going to happen first, so he is not scared and has a better understanding.

The procedure also measured his foot pressure on a special mat. His foot does not lay flat as most of ours do. They can see where the weight hits his foot and how his foot moves as he walks. They also measure his muscle activity. It was a long process, but interesting too! The staff was more than impressive, communicating with him every step of the way and encouraging him the entire time. They also recognize that it is a long appointment.  They allowed him breaks and gave him all the time he needed to start back up again.   When it was all done, they were able to share his own personal “movie” of him walking. They turned him into a little football player and an astronaut. That was the prize at the end of the long visit. We went away from this appointment feeling good about the entire process knowing they have some great data to help him as he grows, which is happening so fast!

Each time we go it is welcoming, warm, and safe. Everyone from the security guard to the Doctors have his best interest and comfort in mind. It is an experience that is hugely different from some other clinics and offices we have been to.  We look forward to our weekly PT visits!

 

We love Shriners Hospital!

These are pretty awesome! I have an aunt with dexterity issues and these were amazing for her. The were easy to get on and off and made her feel a little more independent. She really enjoyed the design and the cute little saying on them! We will definitely need to get more for other family members. This was such a unique and awesome idea! We loved them!!

Stylish Ease

These socks are the cutest and I love the little finger hole for being able to pull them on nicely. They are thin and soft. Ty for letting me try these 🥰

Soft and Simple

Super soft and comfortable socks. They are the perfect amount of thickness to still be breathable and are the only socks with a pulley!

Comfortable Charm

Socks can be simple, complex, and/or unique. Even if you’re not a sock person (you just get socks because you need them), there will most likely be at least one type of sock that catches your eye be it food socks, pun socks, etc. You just have to find the right ones!

These socks are from a small company called Beedlebug, and these specific kind are called Socktalkies. They have a clever pulley design for easy wear, a peace inspiring message (“Peace Be With You”), and good vibes! They are a bit more on the thin side so I would recommend them more for neutral or warm weather.

If these socks are your style, and you appreciate the kindness they bring, I’d say go for it!

Peace be with you!
