My Neck Is Stuck At 90 Degrees

published 1 week ago by Dr. Frederick B. Covington

Let’s open our Occupational Therapy minds. Is there any recommendations you would give for this particular young lady? Any intervention needed at all? Adaptive equipment? Summary: AT just one years old, an accident affecting Afsheen’s neck changed her life forever. When Afsheen was a baby she fell from her older sister’s lap and was hurt. Being unable to afford to take her to a doctor, Afsheen’s neck permanently became stuck in a sidewards position - and she is still suffering from this today. Afsheen, now aged 12, needs help from her brother and mother to do basic tasks. Despite all the setbacks, Afsheen has grown in confidence with the help of her friends and social media. Her mother, Jameelan, and brother are hoping that one day soon Afsheen will undergo surgery to improve her standard of living.
