At Abi’s Place, we contract physical therapy services through Progressive Pediatric Therapy, www.ppt4kids.com. Progressive Pediatric Therapy is able to help a child’s movement development by working on gross motor activities and providing hands-on training to caregivers for positioning, movement, feeding, play, and self-calming. It is important to remember that it is through play that young children learn many skills. Your therapist will develop an individual program of play activities that match your child’s specific needs—to improve strength, movement, and function.
Physical therapy can also benefit children by focusing on prevention of posture problems and joint limitations. This is done by encouraging mobility and fitness, managing muscle and/or joint pain, and recommending braces and other helpful equipment to maintain health and function. The physical therapist will educate parents about self-care, maintaining daily routines, socialization, and physical activity.
