Patient Progress

We see patients from infants through age 18. If a child needs our medical care throughout his/her life, we make a commitment to provide that care. As we find adults who have been patients, we will highlight them here to show the difference that St. Andrew’s Children’s Clinic made in their lives. From time to time, we will show photos of children at different points in time—again to show the difference The Clinic has made in their lives and the commitment we make to their care. Photo update May 2017.

In February, 2004, Martín was 2 years old. He has spastic cerebral palsy and lives in Nogales, Sonora. Here he is in the Physical Therapy Department where the physical therapist, Barb Sinclair, is assessing his motor development. Martín’s mother assists. He used to be so stiff that the therapist had to rock him to get him to relax. Now he can relax one hand so he can use it.

At age 15, Martín can now pull himself up if he has something to hold onto. Through the years, his mother has worked a lot with him on therapy exercises. Martín continues as a patient in the Physical Therapy Department.
