    1st time crawling!

    Today I crawled on all 4's for the first time! I was really excited because my knees didn't drag, I lifted and moved them forward. Tommorow we try again... any ideas on more exercizes I can try?


    here is a pic!

    Hope you're able to get bipedal soon.

          Congrats!

          I try to crawl backwards too. You will probably need to have someone hold your feet up to keep them from dragging. Also try crawling to the side.

            Walkin' on two feet.

            And since you're a rather newly injured incomplete you should benefit quite a bit from Project Walk. Get the hell outta the chair!

            Best wishes.

              Awesome job man! Watch your knees though, knee pads come in handy!

                cdog, that's great! Can you get up into tall kneeling? Crawl to a couch or chair or exercise ball, then use that to get your trunk upright so you're standing on your knees. Then you can do all sorts of core trunk exercises. I have a C6 injury and have recovered walking. I've done a bunch of crawling, a lot of tall kneeling, and a load of other stuff as well.

                Have you checked out Next Steps Chicago? Web site: http://www.nextstepschicago.com/ .. I think they're not that far from Lansing. They have a good facility and some excellent people there.

                    Cdog ... that would be your second time crawling.

                    Don't you remember when you were just a little rug rat ? You learned once before so we are looking for a quick study.

                    Keep up the great work. You have lots of people cheering you on ... literally and figuratively!

                      Did you receive therapy there or just hear good things? It would be a lot easier than packin up and movin' to cali. it's like 30 min from my house!

                        cdog, I haven't been there, but I do know a bit about them. I have done some therapy at Next Steps NW here in the Seattle area which is loosely affiliated with Next Steps Chicago. The founder of Next Steps NW (who is a friend of mine) was at Project Walk with one of the founders of Next Steps Chicago. Also, Pat Rummerfield is involved with them. He's a walking quad who has recovered remarkably well, and now works with John McDonald at Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore.

                        At Next Steps Chicago, they have a Lokomat robotic gait trainer along with other good equipment, and like I said, some very good people. They are worth checking out.
