Patient Stories


Kaitlynn first started showing signs of dystonia when she was five years old. She went back to crawling instead of walking. The neurological condition began to affect her speech, as well. Kaitlynn now walks with the aid of a walker, but she and her doctors are aiming to help her be more independent. The Bubba Watson and PING Golf Motion Analysis Laboratory at Phoenix Children’s Hospital is helping her do just that. The physical therapists are able to track Kaitlynn’s movement using state-of-the-art video and imaging technology. From that, they’ll create treatment plans to help guide Kaitlynn’s physicians through her treatment.
