      heterotopic ossification (HO)

      HO can be treated with didronel for a while. HO is a chronic condition that you need to find a happy medium of finding the right cushion and back in your wheelchair for seating, gentle range of motion (ROM), and pain management. ROM can help but it needs to be directed by a PT to teach your aides and caregivers to perform. Vigorous ROM could cause a bone fracture so be careful.
