Many children with gross motor difficulties struggle with coordination, balance, and poor respiration. These challenges are often related to muscle strength and inefficient compensatory movement patterns. An experienced physical therapist can help identify these inefficient patterns and guide the child through better movement, which in turn results in improved coordination, balance, endurance, and overall participation.
Physical therapy at Foundations Therapy is also very play-based to keep kids motivated while working. Exercise programs are important for in the home but are family-friendly and specifically tailored to a child’s needs.
