Abandoning the braces

About six months ago Abby was fitted for Sure Steps. We were skeptical about whether they would work and whether the $600 or so would be worth the investment. We quickly went from skeptics to believers. She walked better. She fell less. Her pronation was significantly improved. So we have slowly backed off of her wearing them. She now only wears them when she is really tired or when she rides her bike. It just seems like she walks equally well with them as without them. If that is the case then why make her?

She starts PT this week at school so I am curious to see how the PT feels about it. I am hoping she agrees with us about leaving them off. I guess we'll see. :D
