Every day Shira has physio therapy performed on her. Stretching and movement on vibrating mats is done for about an hour and a half daily followed by standing in the afternoon. Here is a photo of Shira doing a supported bridge pose. We started slowly and have been doing this for some time so if you are going to try it with your child start with less of an angle. Remember to support the whole body don't let anything dangle. There are pillows and blankets underneath Shira supporting her neck, legs, shoulders and arms. Shira is on her respirator also. If your child is prone to reflux you can still do this with a wedge underneath so the head is above the buttocks.
