Ananya, my daughter was all of 8 months when the doctor declared her as a “special-child” and diagnosed the condition as “cerebral-palsy” because of which her motor skills would forever be affected. It plainly meant that Ananya would need help all the time in every ordinary life activity including one major thing: independent walking. Rushing from one doctor to another, being one of the many crying and wailing C.P patients who were literally forced to do Neuro- developmental exercises passively in cramped little physiotherapy centres of Mumbai, Ananya obviously had a tough time.
We first entered Vardan in 2013 when we shifted to Delhi. Starting from the Receptionists to the doctor-therapists, everyone exuded a healing touch, reassurance and above all; confidence. I remember the first time Ananya had a therapy session with Mike Binet, she just couldn’t stop laughing. FMT was so much fun!
From being a 8 month old baby to a 12 year old girl it’s been a long journey for Ananya, but thanks to FMT from friendly and enthusiastic therapists at Vardan, she has now, started walking on her own. She can even climb up and down stairs without aid now. Her posture, sense of balance and gait is already tremendously better.
Ananya is a fighter. Along with our new found family at Vardan coupled with the strengthening set of exercises of FMT, she looks forward to being much more stronger and efficient in times to come. Thank you Vardan.
