Caleb Taylor began physical therapy [PT] with Sage Care in December 2011. When Caleb began PT he was 5 years, 8 months old with gross motor function between 1-15 months old based on standardized test results.
He was only walking short distances on his tip toes. Over the course of 2 years, Caleb received bilateral Supramalleolar orthoses in addition to core and lower extremity strengthening and flexibility exercises. At physical therapy discharge, in December 2013, at the age of 6 years, 7 months old, his gross motor function was between 4-16 years old based on standardized test results! He was able to perform sit ups independently, jump on a mini trampoline with 1 and 2 footed landing, walk with heel strike long distances, and stand on one leg in yoga “tree pose” for at least 30 seconds.
Caleb’s therapist, Lelia, said “Caleb was a very fun kid to work with. His supportive & loving family definitely made sessions that much more fun & productive!”
Sage Care is lucky to have Lelia as part of our physical therapy team. She graduated with MSPT from TWU in 2004. After graduation, she worked in all areas of therapy, but primarily with adults and geriatrics.
In 2011, several PT friends raved about the awesomeness of pediatrics & Sagecare Therapy so I decided to give it a try! 2.5 years later they were right! I still love pediatrics & Sagecare” –Lelia
