Joanne Builds Strength with Boxing

Joanne lives with a progressive brain disorder that 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 has made steady improvements in these areas, building her confidence and ability to work towards her goals.

Through the Everyday Magic program, Prakash arranged for Joanne to have her own boxing gloves and pads to practice boxing between therapy sessions with her carer and sister.

We hope you enjoy your new fitness regime Joanne.
