Help Ben walk without pain
It was midnight, he could barely stay awake but he said there was no way he would get any sleep at all if he didn't stretch.
Its Christmas & he's in agony! He needs the laxity in this ligament reduced & treated but we just cant afford the procedure yet.
At around midnight on Sunday an absolutely exhausted Ben was up & really struggling with his calf muscles.
Being of his feet with his knee & hips meant that the years of muscle tone he had built up has wasted away.
Whilst he waits until we can afford to get the damage to his anterior cruciate ligament treated as it was damaged due to his knee cap dislocating, he is plodding on as best he can.
However with little muscle tone in his legs even the shortest of walks can hurt like crazy for him because his calf muscles are exceeding there current capability as there not strong enough to take the pressure.
Last night his muscles were not happy & although he was shattered & struggling to stay awake he was desperate to stretch out & try to relieve some of the tightness & pain.
It was a long night for this little man!
Find out more about Ben hear
A combination of his hip injury/shallowing of the hip, dislocated knee cap/overstated ligament & muscle wastage from 12 weeks of his feet with the injuries have resulted in massive deterioration. His legs & feet are now twisting inwards because he doesn't have the strength to control his stepping.
Ben has had a terrible few months all because of lack of treatment. We haven't been able to fund the treatment he needs just recently due to a dip in fundraising. His body buckled under the strain while resulted in serious injuries one of which is permanent damage.
Due to him being of his feet for so long with the injuries & us having to pay private to get the injuries treated as the NHS couldn't help, his quad muscles have wasted & become very weak & he is struggling to walk.
Ben suffered a full pelvic tilt forcing his hips to dislocate. As a result of this he now has a shallowing of the right hip. Effectively the ball of the hip is now loose in the socket.
He then dislocated his knee cap resulting in the ligament that holds the knee cap becoming over stretched. This now requires a surgical procedure to tighten the ligament so that he regains the full use of his leg. This procedure IS NOT funded on the NHS.
In this video you can clearly see the weakness & deterioration in his right leg. His leg & foot is now twisting inwards making it extremely difficult for him to walk.
