Joanne starts boxing
Joanne lives with a progressive brain disorder which affects her strength and coordination in her upper limbs.
During therapy sessions with Prakash, Everyday Independence physiotherapist, it was revealed Joanne loves sports, but didn’t get involved because of her physical limitations.
With support from Prakash during physiotherapy sessions, Joanne started simple boxing drills focusing on her upper body to build her strength, coordination and endurance.
Each week, Joanne is making steady improvements in these areas.
Through Everyday Magic program, Prakash arranged for Joanne to have her own set of boxing gloves and pads so she can practice boxing in between therapy sessions with her carer and sister.
