Physical therapy helps children who are experiencing gross motor delays. Gross motor skills are those movements that require use of the larger muscles in the body, for example walking, running, sitting upright, throwing, and balancing. Our experienced physical therapists set goals and achievements for each child to help motivate the child and measure progress. In physical therapy some of the things children work on are: transitions through the developmental sequence, stretching and strengthening muscles, navigating obstacle courses that may have them walking on balance beams, climbing up stairs, or crawling through tunnels, jumping over and onto obstacles, and practicing throwing movements.
